BODIES AND IDEAS IN DANCE. THINKING WITH CONTACT IMPROVISATION

5. 10. 2016

Marina Tampini

Marina Tampini (IUNA-Buenos Aires) presents her research on contact
improvisation. The author suggests looking at CI within its historical
becoming of dance and culture, trying to understand the workings of
this practice as unusual modes of socialization, creation and
experimentation with the sensible. From authors such as Focault,
Deleuze and Spinoza, her work seeks to understand the concepts of
body, art, movement (as a dance medium) and composition (such as
creating dances) posed by Contact Improvisation. At the same time, it
suggests that shifts and breaks proposed for this form of movement
inside the field of dance become more understandable when read in
conjunction with broader art concerns and the still wider contemporary
regime of the sensible. After the presentation of her theoretical
research, Tampini will bring her ideas to the body and will coordinate
a session of contact improvisation with the seminar attendants.
