About the Event
Contact improvisation workshop with Scott Wells (US)
ZERO TO FLYING
Aerial aspects of contact improvisation: flying, catching, landing, fluid acrobatics, deft maneuvers. For the acrobatics everyone will work at their own level and will learn best by building group safety and trust. I aim to connect the work to somatic knowledge. We’ll do some of my favorite contact exercises and current curiosities. Created or learned over the decades investigation and indulgence. At The Athletic Playground we’ll use the fabulous mats to learn a variety of acrobatic/contact maneuvers. With repetition we become oriented and tricks become skills.
In 1981 Scott discovered the pleasure of contact improvisation shortly after becoming obsessed with the struggles of modern dance. He stuck with both and currently directs a company in San Francisco and tours annually to Europe. Wells has created works for skateboarders, boxers and recently choreographed West Side Story. In 2005 Scott received the Izzie for Outstanding Choreography and was selected by Dance Magazine as “one of the 25 To Watch”.
After receiving his MFA in Dance from the University of Illinois, Scott moved to San Francisco and started a dance company with everyone’s favorite dancer, Kathleen Hermesdorf. This first company consisted of fellow graduates form Illinois who decided of make a go of it. The first show had an audience of 15, but hey, Joe Goode came.
Although to some it seemed SW&D (Scott Wells & Dancers) was headed straight to the top, the company has hung around San Francisco and made some fine work without becoming world famous or rich (enough). However, Wells has toured to many countries (Turkey, Canada, Germany, Romania, Croatia, Denmark, Holland and Hungary) to teach and perform because of his renown in the world of Contact Improvisation. In 2009 he tought in Germany, Spain and Austria created new works and had a baby in Budapest.
Workshop will be led in english. If needed there will be translation to slovak language.
