Over het evenement
I'm excited to welcome back Tommy Russo to the monk-e temple for an afternoon workshop in contact improvisation followed by a potluck, and then an evening of improvisational dance & sound healing.
15u - 17u30: Contact Improvisation Workshop
17u30 - 19u: Vegan Potluck (bring vegan food if you stay)
19u - 21u15: Improvisational Dance Jam
Tools and techniques:
We’ll review fundamental skills that can be useful in contact improvisation and incorporate them in a safe and fun way into dance. We advance quickly but confidently, developing a stronger, more aware body.
Working with partners, points of contact and play with weight and spatial directions to develop subtle, as well as highly physical movement abilities and creatively explore and improvise movement patterns and pathways. With no fixed steps, flowing through space and levels, from rolls to lifts to flying.
Open to beginners and advanced.
In the second part of this event, our improvisational dance will be guided by DJ Michael. A very gifted musician and DJ that will bring "een relaxed setje met saz, oud en cello".
You can come for the first part only for 22 euro.
You can come to the second part only for 12 euro.
You can enjoy the full event for 30 euro.
Pay at the door: 25 euro, 15 euro, 35 euro.
If you stay for the full event: bring vegan food for a potluck (everyone shares their meal, no dead animal food in the monk-e temple).
