“We have two legs on the ground, two arms in the air. Our body bridges earth with sky.
During the day we walk, while dreaming we fly. Contact Improvisation is a wonderful dance form, through physical contact we can experience such qualities that can enchant our movement experiences, like flying for example!
In this workshop, you will experience what flowing into flying means – giving first our support to the earth and effortlessly leave it – how does that feel, how your body can be light and what are the qualities needed inside the variety of ways to approach it.”
FLOWING INTO FLYING
with Gregory Chevalier
In this workshop, you will experience what flowing into flying means – giving first our support to the earth and effortlessly leave it – how does that feel, how your body can be light and what are the qualities needed inside the variety of ways to approach it. We will:
- investigate an inner flow of nourishment.
- work with embryological consciousness for a soft and malleable inner axis
- visit principles of material for the spine to curve into our partner axis
- explore some CI principles like going with, amplifying, bouncing
- invite our spine as our most intelligent limb.
- swing and play with the endless gifts of momentum
- see, greet each others and have fun!

I teach Contact Improvisation, Authentic Movement and Body Consciousness basedimprovisation since 2012.
My approach focuses on a deep and honest somatisation through touch, movement and presence, providing a safe ground before playing techniques. Somatisation is mainly inspired from Body Mind Centering® that I mainly learnt from Kálmán Ferenc. I also love seeing and being seen, creating an atmosfear for dance to become visible and appreciated from both sides, audience and dancers.
I have been teaching workshops in festivals in Israel, Italy, Georgia, Austria, France, Croatia, Germany, Switzerland and Holland. I am the artistic director of Kontaktland, Hungarian International CI festival. I also founded in 2018 KiT ensemble, a dance company performing Contact Improvisation (www.kitensemble.com). In 2020 I created Contact Playfight, a wonderful form that I love, between Contact Improvisation, animal and children play, bringing somatic consent awareness and expanding our comfort zone and boundaries settled by society.
