Jam: 8:00-11:30PM

Readiness (Contact Improvisation Fundamentals)

C and I

C is for Contact. I is for Improvisation. I is also for Imagination, Instinct, Intuition and Sense of Self. We’ll warm up and ground our dancing in CI skills such as integrating center and periphery, moving in spherical space, falling and fluid weight-sharing.

Inside of these kinetic investigations, immersed in the place where movement is its own language and sensation informs design, we’ll cultivate the I’s of imagination, improvisation and the solo mind inside the duet. Replacing ambition with curiosity, we’ll practice investigative art-making, deep play and serious fun.

MAY DAY 2015

May Day 2015 marks a transformative moment in CounterPulse’s 22 year history. This event memorializes 10 years at our Mission Street venue and celebrates our highly-anticipated move to the completely renovated, former porn theater that we recently acquired in the Tenderloin. May Day 2015 is a retrospective romp through the organization’s colorful history and an invocation of a future San Francisco that is vibrantly alive with grassroots art. This is art catalyzing action. Join us in performing this annual ritual in celebration of our rich history. This year we step boldly forward.
