Karl Frost Poetics of TouchThis workshop will focus on the art-making inside of the practice of contact improvisation. We use our base in the physical skills and sensitivities of contact improvisation to explore a kind of collaborative art-making of personal experience… the poetics of human contact.

The workshop will look at the kinesthetic side of the dance and the somatic-psychological possibilities of touch and human interaction. The dance will be explored in terms of the felt experience of the dance, both for its own sake and as a potential source for stage performance… dance not just about repeating acrobatics, but looking at a sense of personal meaning within the dance.
