During 2 afternoons Siri Clinckspoor and Stéphanie Auberville will meet and create together. Siri loves to dive into the realms of the body through experiencial anatomy, using images and metaphors to open up the universes of our layered and moving beings. With her background in contemporary dance, authentic movement, dance therapy and Pilates, she combines the concrete with the undefined, in a journey to meet our sources of creation. Stéphanie is a dancer, improviser and choreographer with a broad experience in the field of improvised performance. In her work she collaborates with many different improvising artists, musicians, dancers and poets, exploring places outside of the theatre, in the world at large. In her sessions of CI she brings along her (com)passion for the Human Being in all its diversity and richness. Sourcing from the Tuning Scores of Lisa Nelson her approach invites for our perception and minds to open. Through very simple but fundamental scores and proposals she touches core principles of CI that will inspire both new and seasoned CI practicioners.

This workshop is part of a 4 day immersion into contact improvisation. From May 9th till 12th several facilitators will share their experience and inspiration of CI. The mornings focus on movement research from different angles. In the afternoons 2 teachers will co-teach, letting their languages and approaches meet and exchange, creating together an environment to open and deepen our understanding, inspiration and practice of CI. Whether you are just beginning or you are a seasoned CI practicioner, you will find sessions that are accessible and inspiring for you ! On Friday, after the afternoon session, before the evening JAM, we make space to sit together, sharing questions and reflecting on topics related to CI.


This workshop will be conducted in English. Wear clothing in which you can move easily, without hard or metal parts. Bring a bottle of water for in between sessions and a pair of soft knee pads.
