We warm up our perception for space, the floor beneath us and the people around us. From there we focus on physical touch and its functions in dancing – how does the point of touch serve us?
Orientation and support are the most important aspects that we have a closer look at. We practice some easy tools of sharing weight, which help enjoying a jam situation. We enter the beautiful world of playing with shared weight!
Open for beginners and anyone else who wants to focus on the basics of CI.

I see both movement and touch as valuable forms of human communication, as they can reach beyond the field of verbal expression. I have been practicing CI for about seventeen years and for three years fulltime. I studied contemporary dance in Outokumpu, Finnland. For many years my interest in Shiatsu massage has been affecting my sense of perceptive touch and intuition while dancing. I believe that being seen, being heard and being touched are basic human needs that affect the world of dance a lot. Meeting theese needs with profound listening skills – listening to space, sounds, touch, (...) and rhythm can form the basis of improvisational art. Bodywork and improvisational dance complement my general interest in communication.
