Contact Improvisation
Listening Touch Visceral Awareness

4 class series at the Yoga Loft
August 1, 8, 15 & 22

In this series of classes we will explore physical states in order to navigate the tension between dance thought and action in contact and partnering.

By dropping into deeply sentient states in the physical body we engender a connection that reaches through the physical to relational and energetic where one can perceive the interconnectedness of our choices--in thought and movement with others. Kyra works from the premise that if we consider sensorial as thought it can lead to responsibility through visceral awareness. This series is intended to navigate our way through states that spill over into the fully sentient. Open to those who are new to CI and fruitful practice for all levels.
