Contact Improvisation & Conscious Movement

Throughout his live Christian has practiced many sports like acrobatics, dance, different martial arts, parkour, free running, etc. All of that has allowed him to generate a strong relationship with his body and through the observation and experience of the different disciplines, to feel the bases or logic of movement. How does the body work?. All of this mixed with his experience and career as an actor and dancer is what brings him to us. Contact improvisation is a dance shared between 2 or more people, always trying to be physically in contact, in which there is complete freedom of movement. In this dance no one leads. The dance is the result of constant listening (where and how are you touching me) and answering (how does that affect me). The attention is focused on what we receive and we answer to it physically with honesty. The action and reaction generate a chain of movements. In this workshop we explore the infinite possibilities that our bodies offer us when we move in contact with another person, the different levels and qualities in which we can move, the different ways of touching or being in contact, how to share the weight and centre, and how to get from the ground to fly on the other person. It is an experience of deep connection and healing through listening in openness inside out. It is an experience open to all people regardless of age and other conditions. Christian has had the opportunity to teach this same workshop in Nepal and the commune Beneficio in Southern Spain with amazing results.
