Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
You went to your first Contact Improvisation (C.I.) class, or a friend invited you to the weekly jam, and you're captivated. Or perhaps, you've been dancing and investigating for years. What's next? What discoveries await you in your dance? In 1972, Steve Paxton convened a group of athletes and dancers to research the principles of Contact Improvisation. Since then the form has matured into a worldwide, collaborative experiment with no central control. Everyone who enters adds their findings and permutations to this inherently unfinished dance form. Dancing Deeper Still is a sourcebook of essays on Contact Improvisation, a philosophical treatise, and a handbook. This compilation of 30 years of writings is meant to accompany and support your investigation as you discover new pathways and dynamics in your dancing. It includes chapters on: · Contact Improvisation in performance · Boundaries and sexuality · Political activism · Dancing while aging · Expanded teaching research notes · Advanced skills Whether you are the improviser who savors the slow rivers of sensation…or who delights in spontaneous acrobatics…or any of the bountiful realms in between, this book was written for you. Your discoveries enrich the community-held body of knowledge in our ever-evolving form. I invite you to dance deeper still.

"Your body is a jungle"

I just finished reading Dancing Deeper Still and highly recommend it. Martin Keogh generously shares much of what he has cultivated over decades of dancing and teaching contact improvisation. The book can be read cover-to-cover (what I did) or just by turning to a section and checking-in (what I'll do). What's interesting is that I found many insights applicable outside of the dance. Here's an example: in the "Stumbled Upon Pearls" chapter, Martin shares about a day when he was not feeling "on" in his teaching. He notes that a student came up to him and "hearing my lament said, 'The sign of a master teacher is not how well they teach on a good day, but how they teach on a bad one.' " I feel that this insight can also apply to how I parent and how well I take care of myself on stressful days. Because Martin has traveled and taught in so many different contact improvisation communities around the world, he is like a master pollinator, bringing bits of contact pollen from one community to another. As the reader, I had the opportunity to broaden my own experience of the dance form both through Martin's expertise and through his stories. While I would not call this book a memoir, I also enjoyed learning more about Martin's internal experience as a teacher and global traveler. Rich with imagery and metaphor, one section describes how Martin gives feedback and inspiration to dancers through metaphor. This is a section I will certainly return to. I titled this review with one of his images: "Your body is a jungle."

This book is about more than dance, though I do think you'll want to have practiced CI, or at least have a lot of interest in it, to fully appreciate the book. That said ... man, Martin has such a way with telling stories that are so personal and humble and yet really interesting. He's not afraid to go and go deeply into topics that many of us just gloss over, like sexuality and aging, in a way that — again — I find refreshingly real, kind and not overbearing. And if you're a dancer and looking for inspiration, or stuff to play with on the dance floor, I'd reckon this book will give you a few lifetimes of material.
Contact Improvisation is an art and heart form available to anyone

Martin has captured so much of the essence of Contact Improvisation that so often evades description. My partner used parts of the book to guide a First Timer's introduction recently. I turn to it before a CI jam to remind & reveal something that would be sweet to have at the front of my awareness before the dance. Contact Improv is the dance "I always dreamed of" without knowing its name or intentions before finding it myself 5 years ago. And I want to be clear that while the dance form often shows - like the cover of the book - people with lots of flexibility and strength, CI can be done by anyone who desires mindful connection through shared body movement. I've had some amazing "jams" lying on the floor using just forearms, wrists, and fingers. We dance to express aspects of ourselves that would not come forth without connection with others - and sometimes a shared center of gravity and weight, too. Thank you Martin for capturing so many aspects of CI in an inviting read.
I am inspired to practice Contact Improv once again.

This is a superbly written book that does justice to the poetry that is Contact Improvisation. If you've never done Contact you will get the essence of it and if you have been practicing contact your practice will indeed be deepened.

Martin has a beautiful writing style. It is just the way he talks and teaches. I feel like I am back at the jams in Cambridge, learning from him and dancing with him. This book is a beautiful homage to the form of contact improv, and will help anyone understand the dance and its possibilities more deeply.
