Or did Katie take me?

This was one of the most important workshops I took since I started Contact Improvisation. Katie’s work combines music, voice and dance. It opened my eyes on the limitations of Contact Improv, whoops did I just say that.

The most important thing I learnt in these two days was to EXIT. Exit the floor if I have nothing to say, just exit and watch what I left behind me, who took the spotlight and what did they do with it and relish giving Them that opportunity, and does it means for musicians to improvise to dancers, for dancers to write text and for vocalists to dance? Space becomes as a painting with compositional elements, tensions and resolutions.
