FLYING ≠ JUMPING mit Scott Wells

Aerial aspects of contact improvisation: flying, catching, landing, fluid acrobatics, deft maneuvers. We’ll do some of my favorite contact exercises and current curiosities. Created or learned over decades investigation and indulgence.

For the acrobatics everyone will work at their own level and will learn best by building group safety and trust– everyone will do something new. I aim to connect the work to somatic knowledge. For example: Jumping ≠ Flying because jumping is a muscular action, whereas flying is in the bones and is affected greatly by emotions and attitude.

Scott’s style of contact is athletic and emphasizes freedom of movement, flying, fluid acrobatics (easy to advanced), safety, precision, pleasure and technique. What students often like best in Scott’s classes is the variance between the meditative, listening, slow and sensual dancing and the fun, playful, very physical dancing. And students appreciate how the scary or advanced moves are safe, relaxed and made possible.

The workshop will be held in English.
