Tango and Contact Improvisation is a fusion of two creative forms of dance. In CI Tango, we play with liberating the tango and enrich CI with new, unexpected and fluid movements as well as closeness and intimacy. This is caused by the surrender to the moment and the presence in the meeting. Beyond rehearsed or planned movements we let ourselves be lead by the whole being. An inspiring enrichment is the courage to clear impulses and directions that enlives the dance. Here's the point: Dancing the fire, the sensuality, the courage to show oneself and to invite a play of forces.

 

Benno Enderlein

Benno studied from 1989 to 1993 at the "European Dance Development Center" of Arnhem University (NL). He has been teaching contact improvisation since 1991 and has been practicing since Shiatsu. For nearly 15 years he has been exploring the interaction of Contact & Shiatsu and the work of Contact in the element of water.
He likes to research and teach at the edge of the Contactimprovisation, as well as Contact Tango, Contact & Shiatsu, Contact Tantra and Water Contact. All these forms, on the edge of the usual contact dance, enable us to recognize habits and to exploit the full potential of our possibilities.
Other focal points are awareness training and the study of meditation techniques, in particular ADVAITA awareness and
LIGHT WORK.
He has been organizing CI dance events for almost 30 years. For 15 years he was co-founder and organizer of the International Contact Festival Freiburg.
