Space Mix Dance
Karen Nelson

Bringing somatic techniques derived from Contact Improvisation together with compositional choice making practices found in Tuning Scores, this class will explore »inner and outer spaces«. We will land in our sensing bodies and create ensemble, solo and partner dances using scores that stimulate unbounded and embodied curiosity. With two unique and related systems – Material for the Spine (Steve Paxton) and Tuning Scores (Lisa Nelson) – we will dive deep and fast into the timeless body. MfS sensations include movements intertwining imagination and physicality, locating and distinguishing centers of mass, length, and reflexive balance in space. Tuning Scores, in unison with sensing, physicalizing seeing, partnering with the environment, and calibrating attentional/compositional desire, offers us »single image« medicine – an antidotal score to a busy world.

The workshop takes place in cooperation with Independent Dance (London), The Work Room (Glasgow) and Groundwork Pro (Cardiff).

Fr 19.7. 18:00 – 20:00: An inclusive Lecture-Demonstration-Participation-Jam-Event with Karen Nelson »Contact Improvisation interrogates its history and currency«.
