(UN)Doing Gender in CI
A Contact Improvisation Workshop with Kristin Horrigan
Saturday/Sunday, June 2-3, 2018 @ 12PM – 5PM
Location: SF Conservatory of Dance (301 8th Street)
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP | "Gendered patterns of movement and interaction play a larger role in CI dancing than one might think, given that CI is a form without any prescribed gender roles. In our days together, we will seek to deepen our CI dancing, strengthen our technique, and expand the range of dances we have by discovering how gender lives in our movement and building strategies to undo the ways it limits us. This workshop is about meeting ourselves a new, through re-embodying what I refer to as the “geological” layers that comprise our trained moving bodies." – Kristin Horrigan
ABOUT THE ARTIST | KRISTIN HORRIGAN has taught contact improvisation at festivals, studios, and universities in the USA, Germany, Denmark, Japan, Australia, and Argentina. She holds an MFA from Ohio State University and is a Professor of Dance and Gender Studies at Marlboro College in Vermont. Begun as an exploration of the queer potential of CI as a gender-fluid dance, her current research is a practice of unearthing the habits and histories that limit us to gendered stories.
