ReWilding is what we do when domestication is not physically smart enough. When bodies meet, intelligence is found not only in the quality of touch, the organization of physical forms, the ability to share the physics of motion, timing, and the giving and receiving of weight, but also and particularly in the ability to communicate more directly, with greater speed and clarity. Working with improvisation scores, our dancing will be technically specific on both physical and attentional levels with full-bodied action. All CI levels welcome.
Nita Little is an activist for relational intelligence through improvisational dance practises that began with the emergence and development of Contact Improvisation (CI). A dancer, teacher, choreographer, and dance theorist, she worked with Steve Paxton on what became CI in 1972. Little received her PhD in Performance Studies in 2014. She tours worldwide on a regular basis working for dance companies, at festivals, conferences and universities teaching, lecturing, and choreographing. Her writing investigates ecological actions of attention and the creative potentials present in entangled relations. She initiated the Institute for the Study of Somatic Communication (the ISSC) in 2016 with dance research ensembles (which all share CI in common) participating from around the globe.
All workshops are for professional performing artists. Some require advanced dance training.
