A Weekend workshop in Göteborg, Sweden.
We all have the desire to be seen and understood;
to be accepted for our unique expression.
In this workshop, we will tease out our solo dances and practice our ability for creating and composing our solos on the spot.

Messy and Unedited is the title I use for a workshop focusing on individual expression. Through devising tactics which allow the movement which is already in us to be expressed, we can unleash the reigns of the mind over our habituated bodies. This is a fun and useful practice for any artist incorporating the body as a medium of expression.

SKILLS AND MOVEMENT POETICS with TAL SHIBI
Some of the Contact Improvisation elements we will work with during workshops:
-Understanding giving and taking weight fundamentals. Bio mechanics of basing and flying.
-Accessing a sense of “flow” in the dance, allowing for the dance to create itself.
-Practicing clarity in our own interest while improvising solos in order to arrive present and engaged in a duet.
will be an open performance sharing oriented lab day. The focus will be on working with the material that came up for us the previous days, and put it into score making and sharing. It will allow us to collaborate creatively with our new material. We will use scores and games to share the tools we learned in a friendly environment with a focus on personal expression and creative improvising. Presence, timing, composition, and breath will be our allies. New comers who are interested will have the option of joining in for this Lab.
MORE ON working with scores :
Contact Improvisation- Performance Tool Kit:
A Lab like class for elucidating the meaning and effectiveness of score making in the dance practice. This practice allows for readability of the dance vocabulary, coupled with a sense of focus and intention which makes for fun and satisfying dance making. Learning these tool aids both individual movers, curious contact dancers and professional dance makers. Working with “scores” is a clever way to create games and sophisticated play for dancers. We will dive into the score making process, emerging with new performance making ideas, and improvisational imagination
