Body-Mind Centering® and
Contact Improvisation with URS STAUFFER
30 May - 3 June 2023
~ 5-day Intensive Workshop
with special focus on Embryology
“Moving With Others, Dancing Myself”
During this workshop we will explore how CI and BMC® inform each other and are a great way to enjoy safe and satisfying dances. We will look at certain aspects such as the relation between form and fluidity, how the skeleton and the organs work together as a support system and explore cellular awareness as a way to communicate where thinking is too slow. Special attention will be given to the embryological process seen from a BMC® point of view as it holds very interesting information about the underlying movement in organization of structure and spaces The workshop is accessible for everybody in normal physical condition. No prior experience in one or the other technique is needed.
