Connections to Contact

with Maga Radlowska.

This project explores the rich possibilities of a vibrant shared language between the movement practices of Bartenieff Fundamentals and Contact Improvisation with a belief that this may offer a unique platform for dancers to develop their own movement vocabulary and awareness of the moving-sensing-body-environment.
