Contact Improvisation: Basics

Basics~a place to begin
~a place to continue from
~the essence of something, that's always present as a thing develops
~a place to return to

In this two day class we'll explore the basics of this improvised form, its movement principles, ideas and practices to support your development, dancing and inquiry of contact improvisation; 'basics', as presented by Anne Cooper, a 20+ year practitioner who has been influenced by her teachers and mentors Peter Bingham, Nancy Stark Smith, Chris Aiken, among others.

Workshop material will be drawn from these influences and others integrated into Anne's own practice and perspective, and from Steve Paxton's 'Material for the Spine', with whom she has had the pleasure of a workshop study at EDAM in the '90's as well as her on-going study of Paxton's reference materials.

Anne has recently returned from a 16 day inquiry, practice and performance installations of Nancy Stark Smith's 'Glimpse' project, this year in Utah, USA. She has danced for/with a number of choreographers, improvisers and musicians for over 30 years, creates her own work and has studied in dance, contact improvisation, theatre and creative writing.
