Love Intensive
The Breathing Body

First we enter the joy of responding to the stimulus of physical details. Then we build confidence that our safety skills are in place. From this base we explore the capacity to move in multiple directions in each moment.


We attempt to know where we are in space as we learn from our present experience, keeping the inner witness awake.


In the nice days of summer, in this wonderful location, we ask our body how, and then let the body answer. All this as we prepare to dance Contact Improvisation.


Come join us as we revisit the fundamentals of the form.

Wu-Wei: Doing in non-doing

Wu-Wei is an important concept in Taoism that literally means non-action or non-doing. The "Tao te Ching" explains that beings which are wholly in harmony with the Tao behave in a completely natural, uncontrived way.

In this workshop we will explore ways to reach this effortless and spontaneous movement, alone and together.

We will start by finding the liquid quality of our body allowing relaxed and soft movement alone and together, listening and becoming one with ourselves and our partners.
We will connect this to working with the connective tissue (Fascia) and using the elasticity and resilience of our body also into a physical and acrobatic dance, with minimum effort.

Through fine tuning of our body/mind, slow and deep work, and detailed exercises, we will take all that into contact improvisation – playing, dancing, jamming, flying.
