Experienced contact dance teacher Martin joins us to talk contact improv dance. We discuss spontaneous movement, the “open source” structure of CI, the relationship to aikido and other systems, cross-cultural factors, South American jams, naked contact, softening gaze, research, contact as relational mirror, learning about oneself through dancing, “terminus stations”, how we dress to a practice, what the room reveals, how you make and leave partners reveals, working with boundaries, the political apathy of dancers, how we dance in times of war, incorporating the conservative and getting to know place.
