HOSTED by MOTI ZEMELMAN - As your host and teacher I bring 30 years of CI experience to share. Based in Montague, MA, I have taught and performed across USA, Canada, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico, Europe and Israel. Over the last 10 years in my desire to integrate communication and intimacy skills in teaching and life I have studied Non-violent communication, Tantra, Butoh, Byron Katie's "The Work" and most recently Betty Martin's "Wheel of Consent". I have been both a teacher and a board member at Earthdance Retreat Center in Plainfield, MA where I currently co-organize the Touch&Play Festival ( https://2018.touchandplay.org ). I am also a featured dancer in Sanford Lewis' documentary film about CI "An Intimate Dance." And I design and moderate the international Contact Improv resource website www.contactimprov.com.
Contact Improvisation as well as any other forms of dance improvisation and witnessing are welcome in the space.
- ALL ARE WELCOME!
