April 27th - 29th, 2012, Institut Prana,
in Vienna (A)
Contact Improvisation (CI) was developed
in the US in the 1970s. As a dance practice and social event CI has a
deeply sensual aspect where bodies find each other and come together.
In classical CI classes, this aspect is basically ignored. The idea of
setting aside sensuality and with it the erotic element, created a space
for CI to develop, which is important, but nevertheless based on fiction.

and getting touched), spanda (vibration of the conciousness and the world)

you, but instead, becomes silent and we experience each other and the space. We do not lose ourselves in one other when our awareness of the space brings us into harmony with the systole and diastole of the universe.
We refine all of our senses in order to enter into play with one another. There are impulses that lead us deeper into each other and open spaces inwardly, and such that allow us to move outwardly, expanding into the space.
The ultimate goal is that by listening to each other, meetings/dances take place appropriate to the specific moment: as close as is suitable for the dancers at that moment: as distant, dynamic, silent, sensitive, poetic, tender, or wild. Be clear with your YES or NO to a dance or to a quality of touch! You practise to be aware of yourself, to be responsible of yourself and empathic towards others. You are invited to get aware of your personal boundaries, limits and taboos and to look at them in a loving way. You might respect them, experiment with them or transcend them.
Günter will provide live music, guide free sounding, chanting of mantras and offer a massage of whispers, that is, a bath of voices (talking, singing, sounds) and touches.
This workshop provides a safe space for personal
as well as group experiences.
None of the heteronormativity of classical
