Laila J. Franklin
This contemporary movement class is interested in excess, fatigue, virtuosity, and care.
Drawing from my background in Countertechnique and contact improvisation,
we will explore ways to move in and out of the ground, to move with and through space,
and to move amongst one another with deep bodily and spatial awareness.
This class will include guided improvisation, learned exercises, and phrase work
LOCULUS will lead you through a series of prompts, scores, and investigations
in this open level improvisation class. Our work together draws from contact improvisation,
ensemble work, noise, authentic movement, ecology, and rhythmic puzzles.
This class will move from structured dancing into an open group score during which we can
experience the full potential of our dancing selves in conversation with each other.
