The Human Contact Project explores a reframing of the art of Contact Improvisation … a shared diving into subtle level awareness of the physics and neurology of two bodies in contact combined with an open sense of the poetics of human beings encountering each other. This workshop will incorporate Karl’s release technique/passive sequencing material and his physical poetics work (see website for full description: www.bodyresearch.org/humancontact.)

March in the Berkshire foothills, and celebrate the turning of the seasons by rolling, pouring, & sharing weight, and lifting off to spring! Find those delicious moments of stillness from which the movement comes. Our Spring Equinox Jam will offer plenty of opportunities for open Contact Improvisation, and will provide a special focus – composing. Come the first night and see the fruits of a two-day performance project, or two days earlier, and participate in it as a member of the corps. Get your dance on. Facilitated by Amii LeGendre.
For those interested in an expanded time at Earthdance, Amii will also be leading the Performance Project for the 2 days leading up to the jam. Check out the Performance Project page (http://www.earthdance.net/programs/performanceproject09.htm) where you can register for both the jam and the Performance Project.
