This internship is based on a monthly 8 hour meeting and it is addressed to adults with a love of theater and to acting students.

During our meetings we will cover the following topics:


a first approach to contact improvisation


development of the body's own abilities through postural integration, stretching and manipulation


In addition, we will look into a creative process and perception methodology. We will ask ourselves questions on the meaning of communication and what message we express with our appearance. We will also explore the physical sensations that take place between two or more partners while getting in contact with each other and with the earth.


The workshop's objective is to provide its participants with some effective, hands-on tools that will help them learn how to interact with others as well as on a stage.  Students will deal with movement, with all its surprises and unexpected moments, and will face their own limits and motor tendencies to learn how to fully utilize the body at its highest potential while increasing their ability to listen. Thoughts and action will be combined to move forward together.


About Contact Improvisation:


Contact Improvisation is a dance genre developed in the United States by choreographer Steve Paxton in the early 70s. This distinctive body language technique has revolutionized the global way of thinking about movement and has influenced the work of choreographers and directors worldwide ever since. 

Contact improvisation is a dance technique in which improvised movement is generated by the dancers physical contact and mutual instincts. This discipline usually involves two dancers which take turns in giving and receiving the body weight therefore alternating the leading and following roles that arise through the sensations of their body contact.
