Kidd Pivot / Improvisation Tools
The improvisation session focuses on discovering and revealing articulations and timings in the body. The class begins with a warm-up as participants articulate deeply through the body in stages, starting from the spine and working towards the extremities. Participants work at their own pace, exploring kinetic relationships both within their own bodies and to the space around them. The class is explorative and non-performative: its focus is on the play between analysis and instinct, and the use of improvisation both as a tool and an experience. This workshop is influenced by mindfulness techniques as well as by more than 20 years of collaboration

Focus will be given to many aspects of her dance making such as clarity, articulation, speed, intense physicality, and the idea of being danced.

Fortier, Louise Lecavalier and Crystal Pite. Company member since 2004, Eric now collaborates with Kidd Pivot as associate artistic director, and stages Pite’s work on companies worldwide.
