1.TANTRA & CONTACT IMPROVISATION: Experiencing the divine in dance and  in touch

sabine sonnenschein warsztaty 01Tantra as well as the dance form Contact Improvisation have an anarchistic approach, they break tabus and free us.

In this class you experience your inner spaces/energies and connect them through breathing. You relate your space of the heart to the space outside/world/universe. You relate your space of the pelvis to the space outside/world/universe around you. You touch the space like a lover and get touched by the space. In Kashmiri tantrism sparsa means touching as well as being touched, sparsa means sensual and erotic touch as well as being touched by the divine. You experience the world with your senses in touching and getting touched.

sabine sonnenschein warsztaty 02In listening to each other we meet each other with every part of our body and find a dance together or the dance finds us. This dance surprises us from moment to moment. We  experience different qualities of touch and of activity/passivity . It might happen that inner and outer space get one and you experience being the space, the divine.

sabine sonnenschein warsztaty 03[Contact Improvisation (CI) was developed in the US in the 1970s. CI is a form of contemporary dance, where two or more people are in improvised movement while being in physical contact. Three-dimensional motions arise through playing with weight, reach, push, momentum and impulse. There is space for sensing, for opening the senses, for play, for the delight of the immediate, for surprise. Each motion emerges directly from the joint flow of movement. "Contact Improvisation is a dance in which two (or more) people touch giving their physical weight as an exchange, as a form of communication. It is organized by attention. Touch is the sensory foundation for this giving (…) (Nita Little: Another Politics of Attention: Shifting Self-Sense, Shifting Time, 2013)].


2. Tandava Meditation & Contact Improvisation

In the slow and meditative dance Tandava we expand into the space and get one with the space and universe. Tandava is a dance meditation from Kashmiri tantrism. The space is full of other souls we can feel around us. In listening to them we find a dance with each other in touching and getting touched.

Worship in a circle for 16 shaktis and 16 shivas, experiencing different qualities of touch and encounter.
