TUNING and CONTACT IMPROVISATION


Francesca Pedullà

Negotiation - Study of the perception of internal and external time and space

I'm fascinated by dialogue, successful, unfinished or even bankrupt. I'm interested in the continual compromises that must be made in order to interact with the environment - physical, auditory, social, emotional, cultural and political. The complexity of the body in motion and its sensitive, dynamic architecture provide a field of stimulating research that generates questions and insights, for example: How we adapt to external conditions? How does individual morphology influence our experience? How do we share the moment? How do we agree with ourselves? How do we dance for ourselves even as we dance together? During the seminar we will work with both theoretical and practical stimuli, find time to discuss the process, do and observe individual and group improvisations, and of course we will dance together.

Contact Improvisation Created by Nita Little and Steven Paxton in the early '70s, CI is a revolutionary artistic platform that allows the affirmation of the value of collaboration as well as individual and collective access to the environment and the universe. During the seminar, using improvisation, we will study the implications of different degrees of "touch", weight exchange, and perception of space.
