These are contact improvisation classes lead by the TRIPCI collective.
TRIPCI is a London based contact improvisation collective of 10 experienced CI practitioners, dance artists and teachers from various backgrounds and influences such as BMC, physical theatre, choreography, Feldenkrais, contemporary dance, yoga, massage to name a few.
The collective comes together every Friday 11am-12:30pm at TripSpace to teach an open class.
Dancers and anyone eager to improve their contact skills are welcome.
Each session is led by one or several members of the collective.
In the class we will give time for learning skills and improvise: falling, flying, experimenting, and perhaps to forget what we know or what we think we know about contact improvisation. The class is designed to explore possibilities, skills, and connections to lightness while dancing. We will go deeper within listening and following, exploring gaps in the suspension that will allow us to tune-in more to the breath, conversation and movement. We will play with solos, duets and groups. Will be using in the class: spirals, landing, falling, dropping, clashing, bashing, listening, reacting... How to be effortless in movement with a partner in CI? How to be light and playful? How to let go of patterns and habits? Bio:
