Participants will gather at MuCCC at 10 AM.

Dances at MuCCC Festival: Workshop @ MuCCC
Jun 23 @ 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm

Contact Improvisation with Katherine Marino

In this workshop students learn basic principles of contact improvisation; we will be balancing, lifting, and moving together in new and creative ways! Differing from more classical acrobatic or balletic styles of partnering, we approach Contact Improvisation without the traditional roles of “base” and “flier;” instead, roles will be in constant flux, sometimes finding ourselves unsure of who is being lifted and who is lifting. Students should come away with a basic understanding of working in contact with other movers in ways that can be applied to their own movement practice. Open to all levels.

Katherine Marino is a Rochester-based choreographer and performer with a BA in Dance from Hobart and William Smith Colleges. She has performed with esteemed company PUSH Physical Theatre for the past three years, while concurrently fostering her own artistic endeavors in teaching, choreographing, hat juggling, contact improvisation, and loving life.
