Contact improvisation teachers from St.Petersburg, founders of the Kiwi contact improvisation studio.
“We thank luck for meeting each other at the second Moscow festival. We were inspired by the contact improvisation, which we both see as an open dialog, a vast deep see with many answers and even more questions. Along with CI we practice authentic movement, performance techniques and empirical anatomy.”

«Lightsome Pelvis »

About master-class:

Level: fundamentals.
Most people have a vague idea about the form and size of the pelvis. Many people think that the pelvis consists of some small plain parts, others think that it represents just one solid bone. Creating a clear notion of this bone-structure is necessary to distinguish and acknowledge movements and feelings arising there.
Pelvis is one of the biggest bones in the body.

Pelvis is the strongest part of the body. It can hold up to the ton weight, subject to right weight distribution.
The very structure of the pelvis is designed to provide stability and mobility.

Our research will cover the following:
What do I know about the pelvis?
How my feelings/awareness can influence my dance?
What helps my pelvis to become lighter?

We are going to use our knowledge of anatomy and experience it within our bodies and search for the relations that are important for movement. We are going to use some images and see if it can change our dance. We are going to find out how far we can trust the pelvis and try to transfer our heads into our tails. Is it possible to think with one’s pelvis? Or feel with it? How can this approach change our interaction with a partner?

We are going to play with the pelvis, drop it, follow through, look for an easy way to lift it up in search of listening, inspiration and joy.
