Contact Improvisation Events


Intensive one day workshop with Juli Gabor (HU/AT)

“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.”

Flying in(to) CI through the Ilan Lev Method

with Juli Gabor


To create flow and relaxation in our bodies, we will start with bodywork based on the Ilan Lev Method (ILM). ILM works with very similar principals we use in CI, like playing with gravity, leaning, as well it gives a lot of ease of movement through creating waves in the body. After the bodywork, we will explore the ILM quality in solo movement, as well we will bring this into our dance in contact in different duet and group constellations and flying situations, exploring pathways into lifts too. Towards the end, there will be time to experience the qualities and pathways in dancing, integrating elements of the workshop, closing with reflections and harvest.
