The fluid body in Contact Impro
Our body is composed of 70% of water, contained in the connective tissues, cells, organs, blood, lymph, CSF and so on. These fluids passing through inform our whole body. They create movement pathways connecting us to our “fluid” nature. When we tap into this aspect, we become more resonant and resilience beings, whose can move easily and freely. The contact with another body becomes also smoother as we connect to this fluid nature, the weight and density of the body is shifted to a lighter stage and feel less bound by gravity.
I will invite you to experience this fluid body in playful and fun ways, we will use specific breaths and sounds to attune with this fluid experience, and explore with partnering. Imagine the movement genius, the Octopus into Contact Impro!!! Sounds fun to me ☺
Born in France, Sylvain began his artistic pursuits in visual arts at Bordeaux's School of Fine-Arts. He turned to the world of contemporary dance studying at P.A.R.T.S (BE). His influences come from Post-Modern aesthetics, somatic arts, neurosciences and shamanism, which led him to graduate with a dance therapy master at CODARTS (NL).
For the past 15 years Sylvain has been active as a performer, choreographer and teacher, working in a range of contemporary and experimental styles, collaborating with many different artists in Europe and Asia. In 2001, he joined the Amsterdam-based Magpie Music Dance Company, directed by Katie Duck. His solo work has been shown in France, The Netherlands, South Korea, Czech republic, Spain, UK, Belgium, and China.
Today he gathered his interest for creative movement expression, awareness, therapy and healing in "Ways of Moving and Being Moved". It includes artistic projects and workshops, private practice in dance therapy, rituals and working with Co-creative awareness.
