What goes up must come down, and you have to go down to go back up again. Learn how to root, roll, and dig into the Cliffs, Plateaus, and boulders of our bodies to find that negotiation with gravity that we call flying. Find new pathways to the ground. Learn about your soft landing gear. Find ways to be light even as you anchor yourself to the Earth's gravitational pull. Come fall down and cover some new ground. Day Two - GROWING WINGS A study in the art of flying, we'll explore lifts, weight-sharing and the dynamics of flight. Learn to develop more comfort with heights, being upsidedown, and using momentum through the air. We will practice listening to the subtle invitations that our partners offer us to go UP and find new pathways towards the sky! "You're walking. And you don't always realize it, but you're always falling. With each step you fall forward slightly. And then catch yourself from falling. Over and over, you're falling. And then catching yourself from falling. And this is how you can be walking and falling at the same time." - Laurie Anderson Moti Zemelman, MFA, began practicing Contact Improv 26 years ago.
