  • Contact Improvisation with Cookie Harrist

    In Cookie’s contact class, we use energetic and anatomical systems in the body as the basis for improvisational scores in partnership. We initially tap into currents and landscapes in our individual bodies (breath, blood, density, weight, temperature, electricity) and then seek to attune our system to another’s. We play with the scope and specificity of our attention to expand improvisational possibility.
