9º Encuentro CI Barcelona 2010
CONTACT IMPROVISATION: MOVING THE ENVIRONMENT
led by:Daniel Lepkoff
The visible boundaries of our body are transparent to the force of gravity. The forces that we feel within our body, (compression or stretch) do not know the difference between what is us and what is our environment. We move ourselves by extending our architecture and expressing our force into the environment. The environment answers. We move it and it moves us.
We work with exercises designed to help us embody this physical fact in both solo and partner work
This duality offers an extended dimension to our awareness and understanding of what is happening as we navigate through space
This work is part of a larger study of the real time function of the mind and body. It is is the basis of a dance technique and approach to movement composition and performance.

Daniel Lepkoff's work looks at all of our movement as a finely tuned physical dialogue with the environment and explores the form and composition of these interactions as a language for making dances. He played a central role in the development of Release Technique with Mary Fulkerson and Contact Improvisation with Steve Paxton since the early '70's. As a performer and teacher he is known for composing dances that arises from the process of living movement, a vision a living in the body in a physical dialogue with the environment. He is one of the founders of Movement Research in NYC.
This class is designed for people with a energetic physical interest in Contact Improvisation as a form of researching movement research. The work is highly focused and concentrated.
