Should contact improvisation (ci) be performed? Since the instigation of the form in the 1970s, many dance artists, ci practitioners, critics, and audiences have weighed in on this question. Listen is an evening of dances navigated by dedicated, local practitioners each with varying degrees of experience with contact improvisation. Each dance will utilize and/or reveal ci differently. All dances are opportunities to practice listening.
Part of San Diego Dance Theater's Live Arts Fest 2015, Modern Masters and Movements, "Listen" is an evening of dances made in collaboration and in the moment by Anya Cloud, Emily Aust, Eric Geiger, Kristianne Salcines, Leslie Seiters, Nhu Nguyen, Tim Richards, and Zack King, and directed by Jess Humphrey.
