We are going to practice the Underscore this Saturday from 10:30am to 1pm inclusive of arriving and debriefing.

Arrive on time for this practice as we need to talk through the score and set the timing and then do the practice.

The underscore is a great container for dancing and practicing CI. It is suitable for all CI dancers. A certain level of comfort with the form is needed, that you feel confident to roll with what unfolds. If you are unsure you can come at 10:30 and hear the score and decide.
If you are brand new to CI perhaps wait for next Saturdays class or check out the WeMove.studio timetable for CI classes and other wonderful offerings. 🙂

Curious Body - Improvisation session happening today
last curious dance session of holiday series
4-6pm at St Martins
all welcome to move it, great to improvise solo and in small groups. Some Contact but it is not the focus. Focus is on movement creation and articulation, sustaining interest and generating movement vocabulary. Fun. And investigating the spontaneous composing of space and body.

Spring Underscore at the Mullumbimby space
St Martins Hall, Stuart Street

10am arrival, no late starts 🙂

Underscore is the practice again as it provides a great container to hold lots of dancing, playing and observing.

Suitable for all levels of dancer but not for absolute beginners.

10am arrival for a 2 hour practice or so, timing decided with everyone present at the pow wow.

This Sat the 26th we do the Underscore again.

Because we enjoyed it so much last Sat we are giving it extra time this week. Please allow 3 hours for the practice.

10-1pm $10

The underscore is open to all levels of CI dancer, (it is not suitable for absolute beginners.)

Usually the underscore is talked though at the beginning and then practiced in silence until the "final resolution of the room" . Last week Kimberley lead the underscore by talking through the somatic beginning and the layers that lead to "engagement" and then "open score". I will do this again, so if you feel rusty or unsure there will be some guidance in the space.

10am arrival to begin 🙂

This Sat 19th CI will be at St Martins Church Hall in Mullumbimby.

There is an Underscore Practice that we can do together. Kimberley will lead the beginning of the score which is mostly arrival and somatic enquiry until we get to move around, 'graze', and 'engage' into the 'open score'.

For those unfamiliar with Underscore it is great framework for CI and it unfolds naturally into dancing.

Please arrive at 10am on Sat Morning as we need to start together to do this practice .

If you want to google Underscore CI you will find loads of info.

hey how long does the jam go for? <3

Dear Contact Improvisors. Dancers and wonderful moving folk who like and follow this "page".

I have been in conversation with other Byron Bay CI dancers and we are finding it confusing to have two CI pages for Byron Bay. This one is a page. the other one is a group. They are both called "Byron Bay Contact Improvisation"

So we think we should delete this page and just keep the group going as it's more user friendly as a group.

I have saved all the great photo's most of them taken by Alejandro Rolandi at ACIC 2007!

Anyone with an opinion please leave it below.

cheers

Welcome to the contact Improv. Entry of Grays Lane is more a Grays River. So, just take your swimmers to get to our Dance-meditation-Hall. (this is not my April fools joke)

Contact Improv. is happening in Gondwana Hall. There is still water over the road. first schort part is deepest (knee deep). Best to leave the car there. I can pick you up on the other side call me on 0437116619 (usually there are lots of cars offering rides.)

All Contacters welcome and encouraged to come and share in the practice, get ready for ACIC. The Jam is by donation.
