A WORKSHOP IN CONTACT IMPROVISATION
SAW SWEE HOCK CENTRE @LSE
Led by multidisciplinary artist Portia Jiabao Li, the workshop underlined the importance of body languages in a time when the communications heavily relied on visual and verbal means. Emphasizing upon the notion of slowness, the workshop invited the participants to express and reconnect themselves through Contact Improvisation, open-ended exploration of the kinaesthetic possibilities of bodies moving through contact.
We would like to express our massive thanks to Alex Chao Liu, Yihan Shan, Songkun Wan and Awc Wang for facilitating the workshop and Adam Yudong Zhang for the documentation.
