Art of staying connected: rolling, falling, flying

Workshop for ones, who has CI experience and is willing to move on!
February 25-27, Vilnius, Lithuania

We will look for the ways to stay connected in the dance. Our main keys will be: witnessing, listening and following.

We will be finding and loosing the balance, leaning and falling into each other, following the gravity and momentum. We will also explore the structure of our bodies and practise giving and receiving the weight.

We will discover:
- moments, when body becomes light when giving weight;
- moments for easy to supporting (with least energy input);
- ongoing movement flow;
- ways to maintain continuous physical contact with partner;
- possibility to let ourselves into not knowing what is going to happen next;
- weird, unknown, unusual body positions;
- ways to enter and leave contact;
- something, what is not mentioned in this description…

There will be technical material, and we will also focus on our personal curiosity, exploration and pleasure of dance.

We will spiral, roll, fall and fly, melt, listen, share and enjoy!
