Stalking The Wild Psoas in Motion ~ A Collaboration with Adriana Pegorer
NOTE THIS WORKSHOP TAKES PLACE ON A SUNDAY, MONDAY & TUESDAY
Do Not Miss This Unique Opportunity….to playfully (and safely) connect and reconnect with ourselves, each other, and beyond! No dance experience necessary….
This workshop connects our personal core to another person’s core. Using principles from Tango Argentino and Contact Improvisationwe will explore the relationship between personal integrity and playing together heart to heart. Exercises on offering and receiving support (from Contact Improvisation) and creatively walking in partnership (from Tango Argentino) will gradually guide us into a joyful, flowing, inspired dance.
During partner-explorations, we will open up the possibility of challenging and re-organizing our sense of stability and support by creatively negotiating a shared axis, which in turn nourishes our own axis! Tailored explorations will gradually guide us into a joyful, flowing, inspired dance of life.
NOTE: During partner & group explorations you will be asked to maintain a contact with another person (or several people) through some form of touch.
