Workshop with Bastien Auber (FR)
The notion of “CENTER” is often evoked in contact improvisation. For me, a center speaks of a notion of balance and makes a periphery exist, often associated with a sphere. We will try to clarify this term to develop a common vocabulary in our practice of CI. We will play during this class to make alive together the different centers that I propose to explore: center of mass, anatomical center, center of perception, centers of the earth and of the universe.. With some games of our balancing bodies, and with the connections of partners, we will approach some technical aspects of the CI: positions of the feet, mobility of the pelvis, axes of the column, support of the eye’s view, precisions of a lift.
