S U S P E N S I O N [of weight, of time, of balance and of disbelief] a contact improvisation workshop with Andrew de Lotbinière Harwood
MovingEast, London 28th March - 1st April 2016 In this workshop, we will explore the many facets of suspension. In a physical sense we will focus on the suspension of our weight allowing a stretch of time as we float in the air for a moment longer. Also, our bodies, like all motor vehicles, are equipped with a system of shock absorbers, also know as suspension, allowing us to cushion the impact of our mass as we move safely in and out and across of the floor. On a subtler level, it may also refer to the postponement or temporary halt of a judgment, an impulse, a decision or an opinion as in suspending our disbelief. Through a dynamic physical collaboration of the senses we will follow our instincts and be guided by what is already in our body in order to access multiple facets of our innate creative wisdom.
