Urs Stauffer (Switzerland) He does not consider himself a dancer but someone who dances, who seeks with help and through movement.
Gets the certificate in “Somatic Movement Educator” (SME) in Body-Mind Centering®.
After discovering Contact Improvisation in the middle of the 80s, he lived in Berlin from 1989 to 1991, where he studied for movement and dance.
At that time he also began teaching Contact Improvisation at the Tanzfabrik in Berlin.
After the fall of the Berlin Wall, he created his own company in Potsdam, with which he founded the Potsdamer Tanztage Festival.
Between 1989 and 1990 he made decisive meetings, especially with Steve Paxton and Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen.
They become his Masters with whom he continues to update and study. These two important figures together with Anna Halprin constitute his greatest inspiration, adding to his teaching his daily life and the observation of Nature and of “people of no importance”.
Since he returned to live in Switzerland, he has devoted himself to teaching by contemplating a varied public ranging from amateur to professional levels. It is inserted into professional training courses in different European countries, in various dance and theater schools.
His performances were presented in Switzerland, Italy, France, Germany and Cyprus. (photo: Jean-Luc Fortin)

 

 

 

 

 

Title of the workshop: SEARCH WITH THE BODY’S INTELLIGENCE

From my understanding, Contact Improvisation and Body Mind Centering® are ways to do research. They have a long history and tradition in inspiring and informing each other. During this workshop at the confluence of the two techniques, we will explore the use of different tissues such as organs and bones to sustain the dance and look at how cellular communication between different bodies can work where thinking is too slow.

He is passionate about the organization of the human gesture and the relationship between attention and posture.
He works with people suffering from Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease and participates in the ICI and ICrEA projects (dance and neurosciences, C.N.R.S national center for scientific research); as a founding member, he plays a central role in the development of experimental protocols around attention and joint attention.

Title of the workshop: Suspension in action

Contact improvisation is a wonderful means of disorientation and therefore of learning. It allows us to revisit certain constants of human movement such as gravity, touch, support, orientation, under the angle of necessity and not of technique. Through a game of abandonment to gravity and a shared touch, we become the active witness of our own system of balance, coordination and organization. What deepens in the practice of Contact Improvisation is the possibility of remaining in this "wonder of de-doing/re-doing" in action, where supporting forces and a sustaining relationship to our environment and partner are woven. 
For some years now, I have been fascinated by tone, its variations, its musicality; it is a fascinating crossroads for approaching the psycho-physical unity so dear to somatic practices. A large part of the work of the Alexander Technique is to perceive in activity our level of reactivity and to suspend our singular and habitual way of responding to certain stimuli.
This time of suspension allows us to highlight the way we are organized in the moment in relation to our support (the ground or partner) but also to gravity (the forces that organize us) and how we live our verticality (dialogue between these support forces and our orientation, our relationships) and all this is expressed through tone. And it is precisely with this tone that we dialogue in Contact Improvisation. I notice that by observing it and developing its "reading" it gradually becomes a shared territory where the forces and orientations at stake in the duet (comfort and risk-taking) can be organized but also predicted.
This (active) suspension allows for an "open time" where listening (welcoming) and letting go are precisely articulated, two gestures specific to contact improvisation.
I therefore propose to explore this particular space of suspension (inhibition in the language of the Alexander Technique) to see how it is an obvious gateway to an undoing - and to approach the "technique",  not as elements to be reached but as paths in which to "let oneself be explored".

Title of the workshop: From our roots to flying together

In this class we will focus on support on the ground (earth and other’s bodies) and how gravity opens paths for rising, for expanding in space and for moving softly and efficiently. These two opposing forces, support, and expansion, provide ways to contact the others, to roll to the points of contact and to function as one integrated system. These “constantly moving roots” are the anchors that enable us to “fly” towards each other.

With instructions that derive from somatic practices and holistic approach we focus on the awareness and the presence of the partners bodies. We thus add in our explorations the inner workings of human action and inter-action. When and how one transitions from the conscious to the non-conscious, from the body to the mind, from the inner to the outer self and from me to us, are the subjects of this work.

And we finally “play” with the incredible properties of the body: when it functions as an entity, its capacity to vary its shape without breaking, the helix-like and spiral movements created by joint motions (based on experiential anatomy), the infinite kinetic chains it can produce, and more.

For all levels

Theme of the lab: Blow in in the wind

 

in this lab, using some dance and contact impro principles that I have elaborated in the past years, we will explore how to dance, as solo, duets and trios, in a light, effortless and organic mode.

Through various exercises and games we will deepen on how to use in a proper way the gravity, the organic movements, the applied dance anatomy, the breath and the partnering engineering.

Using those principles we will explore the topics:

How can we offer our presence to our partners, being available and open physically, mentally and energetically connected. We will work on how to be in the present -here and now- and in listening to ourselves and our partners. We will explore, while we dance and improvise, how to accept and how to offer and become our meeting, an open, fluid and communicative dance; become our dance a real meeting and a journey.

A dance and a meeting that is blowin in the wind, blowin in the intecconection with the partners and the space.

Title  of the lab: 'The invisible made visible’ Ensemble Physical Theatre

 

- Ensemble Physical Theatre & Voice

We are training ourselves in ‘Ensemble Physical Theatre’ to reveal the invisible communication through the corporeal expression. The dynamic of the Ensemble reinforcing the dynamic of Self, combined with the exploration of the vocal dynamics of the performer as a constantly energetic part of his expressive means. We engage in the practice of discovering our physical expressive tools through kinetic improvisations and we aslo activate an organic connection between our body and voice, between movement and sound.

Τhe physical practice is focusing on the following:

- Practic Study and re-assembling of the perceptional process of stimuli – impulse - physical reaction – expression. 

- Duet and group Improvisation of a continuous Flow of authentic, in the moment expression. 

- We promote a continuous internal interaction between 'inner' and 'outer' stimuli in the performance. We cultivate the alert presence of the performer in the ‘here and now 'of the action, in a continuous flow of interaction with all members of the ensemble.  

The Vocal Practice includes :

- Τοols for preparation and rediscovery of our personal sound in relation to our inner physical structures with core principle the pleasure in the process :

Warming up of the body, face and vocal instruments as the tools of discovery of our unique voice / Group circle vocal improvisation / - Direct connection and activation between body and voice, impulse – reaction through movement and voicing.

- Physical and vocal improvisation in pairs, small and big groups.

- Effortless, flowing physical and vocal expression so as to promote an open, without obstacles body of the performer.
