Taught by Juliet Shelley 


This workshop-laboratory focuses on the vocabulary of Contact Improvisation, Underscore and the practice of a movement 'score' called SOIS.
In this workshop, participants will learn how to broaden and deepen their practice of Contact Improvisation by accessing and incorporating a wide range of choices, flavors and colors in dancing with a partner as well as accessing what is available while dancing the CI in a larger ensemble improvisation.

S.O.I.S (Sound Sight Sensation) is a movement practice that begins with perceiving and responding to information from three sources: auditory, visual and kinesthetic – sound, sight and sensation. It is about responding to simultaneous and non-hierarchical fields of attention in the process of movement and dance.

This practice opens up a wide range of choices and compositional options for the dancer by drawing on an integrated and rich level of resources and responses available in each moment while dancing Contact with a partner.

This workshop/laboratory is offered at a very special and unique rate to include as many people as possible. The subject Juliet is teaching is new and is being offered for the first time here in Paris, before she continues teaching it in England in April.
In addition to receiving instructions/directions, you will have time to explore and experiment with the material.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions and would like to come but can't afford the price.

Ce que les gens disent..

« Ce fut une leçon fabuleuse cet après-midi. Des instructions bien rythmées et significatives qui m'ont appris quelque chose sur ma relation avec la terre, le sens du mouvement et le fait de bien jouer avec les autres. Merci.» Claire Szabo
