Contact Punkte 2018 - Contact Impro Workshops in Hamburg


Die Contact Punkte bestehen aus drei Wochenenden über das Jahr 2018 verteilt, jedes dieser Wochenenden ist von einem anderen CI-Lehrer und seinem Thema geprägt.

Contact Improvisation lebt von ihrer Vielfältigkeit und von den unterschiedlichen Herangehensweisen -  die Contact Punkte bieten eine Möglichkeit dieses Spektrum näher kennenzulernen.


Es gibt die Möglichkeit nur an einem Wochenende mitzumachen oder mehrere zu Belegen.

mixed level Axis Syllabus intensive

Biological alignment is different than a straight line.
Asymmetry can become symmetrical through repetition, as well as reflective, chronological, reverse and simultaneous bi-lateral action.
Let me show you what I mean...


About Axis Syllabus:

Born in 1960, Frey Faust began performing at the age of 8 with his family as a traveling troubadour. He is a second generation contact improviser and an alumnus of the 80´s New York dance scene. Some of his more important early influences came from: Shekhinah Mountainwater, Nita Little, Pavel Rouba, Rene Bazinet, and Janet Panetta. He has worked with and for a number of artists (order of appearance): Ohad Naharin, Donald Byrd, David Parsons, Gina Buntz, Howard Katz, Merce Cunningham, Meredith Monk, Randy Warshaw, Bob Een, Stephen Petronio, Danny Ezralow... to name a few. He founded or co-founded three dance companies, and has created or co-created over 40 choreographic solo and group works. Following an independent study of anatomy, biomechanics, and physics, he has been able to build a pedagogical approach that has made him a sought after teacher, personal coach and technical counselor. After fifteen years of research, he consolidated his findings in a book, 'The Axis Syllabus - human movement lexicon', which he continues to edit with the help of the Axis Syllabus International Research Community. Founded in 2009, the ASIRC is a rapidly expanding group of experts from many related fields in the human movement and education sciences. Recently, his work on the AS has been focused into the construction of a symbol set with the potential to streamline movement documentation and analysis. He also makes shoes, speaks 4 languages, continues to create and perform dances.

9.-11. März 2018                                                                      
Martin Keogh (USA) "Nowhere Bound"


Contact improvisation requires a courageous willingness -- but never so much as when we dance in the absence of will - those moments when we drop the reigns and, nowhere bound, allow our animal to carry us. 


Join good company for dancing and discovery. With games, some sweat, and the unique physicality of the contact body we will savor and rock the boundaries between states of allowing and mindful intention.


We will explore:

o   Moving from a base of sensation

o   Dancing with a shared central axis 

o   Seeking ease in going off balance

o   Finding the spontaneous acrobatics of the form

o   Spending more time in nuance, disorientation, and extended follow-through

Martin Keogh has taught and performed contact improvisation for over thirty-eight years. For his contribution to the development of the form he is a Fulbright Senior Specialist and listed in Who's Who in the World. After attending the Interlochen Arts Academy and Stanford University, Martin spent time traveling to monasteries in Japan and Korea and was the director of theEmpty Gate Zen Center in Berkeley before discovering the world of dance.  He is one of the original members of the Motivity Dance Company, which specializes in aerial dancing on low level trapezes.  Martin is cofounder of Spring/Fall Dance Studio and The Dancing Ground, an organization that produces conferences on gender and mythology in Northern California.  He's worked with Touchdown Dance USA, an organization that teaches C.I. to the blind.  Keogh is the author of The Art of WaitingAs Much Time as it Takes, and the currently released: Hope Beneath Our Feet: Restoring Our Place in the Natural World.
