Physics Meets Chemistry: Contact Improv Wkshp w/ Moti

November 19, 2016, 2:30pm - November 20, 2016, 5:00pm

PHYSICS meets CHEMISTRY: The Pleasure of Motion A Contact Improv Workshop w/ Moti Zemelman WHEN: Sat. Nov.19th, 2:30-6:30pm / Sun. Nov. 20th, 1-5:00pm WHERE: CORE Studios, 133 Sycamore St, Decatur, GA REGISTER HERE: -------------- Founder of CI, Steve Paxton, is quoted 'If you're dancing physics, you're dancing contact. if you're dancing chemistry, you're doing something else.” Let’s challenge this notion in our dancing. Investigating the chemistry underlying the physics of this form asks us to deepen our awareness of sensations, emotions and desires that arise before during and after a dance. Conscious touch is practiced in CI through the art of consent - a devoted listening for the “Yes” and “No” our bodies offer each other moment to moment. We’ll start by examining some of the basic physical principals of CI like gravity, momentum & inertia to observe where sensuality, intimacy and physical principles already intersect. We’ll work on breaking physical habits that keep us disconnected. We’ll do some myth busting to challenge false dichotomies in the “Dos” and “Don’ts” of CI (ie: don’t use your hands, don’t manipulate, always be in the flow). Incorporating eye-contact, energetic awareness, and tantric principles we'll explore being even more deeply present with our partners. …Another quote of Steve Paxton’s I love is: “Just the pleasure of moving and the pleasure of using your body is, I think, maybe the main point. And the pleasure of dancing with somebody in an unplanned and spontaneous way, when you're free to invent and they're free to invent and you're neither one hampering the other - that's a very pleasant social form!” Whether you are new to CI or a seasoned dancer this workshop will offer new skills and ways to enter the dance. -------------- MOTI ZEMELMAN, MFA, began practicing Contact Improv 28 years ago. Over the past 20 years he has taught and performed across USA, Canada, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico, Europe and Israel. In 2008-09 he taught as Dance Professor at the Instituto Naciónal de Bellas Artes in Mexico City. Moti has been both a teacher and a board member at Earthdance Retreat Center in Plainfield, MA. He was an original member of Wire Monkey Dance Co., (Holyoke, MA, USA) and is a featured dancer in Sanford Lewis' documentary film about CI "An Intimate Dance." As a musician Moti plays vocal-electronic music for Contact Jams and in 2007 released his debut CD, Doorwaves. He also designs and moderates the international Contact Improv resource website COST:: Early Bird (Before Nov 6): $85-125 Regular: (After Nov 6): $110 -135 At the door (Subject to availability): $125-150 REGISTER HERE: INFO: Call or e-mail Moti: 413.475.2651

I've spent a lot of time developing this workshop content and I'm really proud to be bringing it to Atlanta! My intention as I designed this experience is to give us the tools, confidence, and permission to venture out of our heads and connect with the innate healer we all have within! ... See MoreSee Less

Bodies in Balance

November 5, 2016, 6:30pm - November 5, 2016, 9:00pm

Bodies in Balance is an exploration of the lunar restorative elements of Acroyoga. Move in rhythm through a flow of solo asana, flying partner poses, and Thai massage on the mat. This guided sequence will highlight experiential anatomy, energy flow, and the power of the breath. We will begin with a Moon Salutation flow, inviting us to bow to and cultivate the quieting energy of the moon, and prepare body and mind for partner practice. With this unified intention we move into a guided sequence of flying restorative poses, followed by Thai bodywork session for the base. Enjoy a relaxing release of tension and sense of renewed energy flow! $30 pre-registered. $40 day of Bring your own yoga mat, blanket, pillow, etc. for your comfort needs!
