Este Domingo / This Sunday
Hi, my name is Beth Erlander and I am an Art and Play Therapist who works with kids of all ages. I have been doing Contact Improv since 1996 and have co-taught CI briefly in Denver and have recently co-led some blindfold CI jams. I attend the Boulder Contact Lab almost every Sunday where we state an intention to focus our dances and dialogue is encouraged. To see more about this please look up Guidelines-Boulder Contact Lab on the web. I am also bringing a copy of the guidelines to share. Currently, I am becoming a “somanaut” which means I am in a training about body-mind centered psychology where we become like astronauts and journey into the body. If you want to know more please check out my teacher and mentor's website www.anniebrook.com. I have been using my new acquired skills to help people slow down and connect to themselves, others and to the ground.
This jam will start by learning how to yield into the ground, the partner that is always there for us. After we connect to the floor/ground we will explore all our end points and begin to move and discover those around us. We will then learn how to yield with another and begin our dancing dialogue. I am happy to come to Portugal and to learn from you and your contact group.
