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
In this workshop, through tantric approach und techniques, CI becomes a tantric practice and sensual dance experience in which space for love energy, full of presence and awareness is provided within a defined form.
We will experience classical basics of CI techniques (dealing and playing with gravity, effect and use of weight) in a new way because of tantric approaches towards the world, such as sparsa (touching and getting touched), spanda (vibration of the conciousness and the world) and surrender to your lover. klklklklkkkkllkkklklklklkjkjkjkjk
In dance we touch the space - our lover. We make love with the space or with a partner or several partners as well as the space. You allow the awareness to experience you, the space, and us.
CI, as a tantric
practice, means experiencing an "us," which arises from non-intentionality,
from improvisation, and from the very moment.
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! Become aware of your boundaries and limits!
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. Personal boundaries and limits will be respected.
For participation some experience in a wholesome as well as physical training is needed, like Tantra, CI or as well dance, dance improvisation, Yoga, Tai Chi, martial arts etc.
None of the heteronormativity of classical
