An exploration of Contact Improvisation as metaphor of a relational space beyond mono- and hetero-normativity
This lab is about drawing connections between some issues in queer and polyamorous relating and some aspects of contact improvisation.
We will look at dependency, autonomy, support, falling and fear of falling, reciprocity, leading and following, etc. as they appear as physical principles in the movement practice, and as they appear in attempts to forge affective relations beyond and against compulsory heterosexuality, male domination and privilege, and the norm of monogamy.
