Contact Improv at

About the workshop

Contact Improvisation (contact improv) is a social movement practice. Through the external engagement of body in proximity to body, Contact Improv provides a space where play is the name and reciprocity is the game. We will explore contact improvisation principles: touch, momentum, listening, weight-sharing and the exploration of the body in relation to other bodies. Within this form there is an emphasis on readiness, so we might find ourselves in precarious positions and we must find a way to ‘solve the problem’. This philosophy teaches us to listen and encourages intermodal empathy allowing us to synthesize our reflective and external lenses giving us an enriched sense of ourselves and our communities. Required or Suggested: Water, clothing without zippers or buttons(don’t wear anything that can potentially catch other people’s clothing or cut or bruise you, should you put weight on it)

Suggested Footwear: bare feet will prove to be most efficient in this classMusic: A wide range of music genres, most of them instrumental

Meet your host

My work challenges fixed notions of gender and sexuality, the female archetype within the family, and the body as landscape. Within my work the observer will find varied explorations of grotesque corporeal wit, human narratives through anthropomorphic expressions, and the intermingling acts of birthing and composting. My work has shown at the Ohr-O’keefe Museum of Art, the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, the UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art, The Mesa House, the Ent Center for the Arts at UCCS, Cossit Hall at Colorado College, and the Terri Goodhue Gallery. Venese has worked with Ormao, Pantera Chamber Ballet, HIJACK, Larry Keigwin, Body Shift, and others. In 2015, I was an artist in residence with Pantera Chamber Ballet, while conjunctively teaching at Kazan University of Culture and Art, in Kazan, Russia. In addition, some of my teaching experience includes the teaching residency at the Beulah School of Natural Sciences, adjunct at the Colorado Springs Conservatory, the Positive Note Program for people with mixed abilities. The Ormao Dance School, The Dance Center, and the Mathtastic education-through-dance program. I would like to acknowledge the Apache, Comanche, Caddo, Tonkawa, and many other tribes who were the traditional custodians of the land we move and create on.

Celebrate Summer Solstice with us this Sunday (6/26 - 2pm) at Flow Cedar Park – Carolina will guide us through an invigorating practice with 108 Sun Salutations🌞

"Why 108?"
In yoga, the number 108 refers to spiritual completion. Ancient yogis believed that we can attune ourselves to the rhythms of creation by completing practices in rounds of this sacred number.

You might be feeling a bit intimidated by this practice, but don’t worry... we got you 😉
 
We will break it down with 12 rounds of 9 guided Sun Salutations (which, when multiplied, add up to 108) with rest time in between and #intention setting for each round.

Remember, Yoga is not about competition, this is a moving #meditation and an incredibly transformative practice! 

We will move together, mindfully, with options for modifications for all bodies.
