13, Rue Finkmatt
Strasbourg, Alsace, 67000,

I am a Contact Improv Teacher.

This member can host out-of-town jammers.

Falling in love with Contact Improvisation in 1988 I spend most of my time and energy in finding deeper into the form as a mover and since 15 years as a worldwide teacher. Based in Strasbourg France and Freiburg Germany, I am also regularly teaching in South America and all over Europe, including East Europe and Israel. Our events like the contactfestival freiburg in Germany are annual events, where contacters from all over the globe meet, share and explore the form, having fun getting friend with people from the other side of the world.
As an artist, I work with a performance concept, that allows the audience to be part of the composition of the moment. The respectful touch is one of the tools we work with. My Partner Daniela Schwartz and me realized this performance in many cities in South America and Europe.

Genevieve CRON : Danseuse Contact - Improvisation

Enfant, Geneviève CRON peinait à combiner ses passions pour la danse et pour la gymnastique.
Durant ses études scientifiques, elle découvre l'improvisation en danse, en théâtre et surtout la danse contact improvisation en 2003.
Depuis 2006, elle intensifie sa formation en contact avec des professeurs internationaux et pratique les jams intensivement. Les professeurs qui l'ont le plus marqués sont Nancy Stark Smith, Jörg Hassman, Jess Curtis, Nina Martin et Edwine Fournier.

Le contact reste aussi son axe premier de travail dans ses pratiques parallèles : le toucher (massage thaï), la disponibilité du corps (mouvement sensoriel, analyse du mouvement, yoga), la physicalité (travail d'’endurance), la création instantanée (Julyen Halminton, Andrew Morrish); et l'expressivité (théâtre-forum d'Augusto Boal, danse-théâtre) ; danse à deux (tango, tango-contact).
Elle enseigne la danse contact improvisation et l'’improvisation. Elle prend part à des performances avec divers collectifs (Tangible, Almasdream, Bidule Box, Wysiwyg, Comipok, FaireRhizome) principalement en extérieur.

Watching two contact-dancers we could say easily that the point of contact is the keystone of a living, moving and dancing building made of by the two dancers.
But this travelling point of contact can only be right, rich, and nice if the basis are fully awake.
What are these basis? Simply opening our senses allows us to receive and give. Thus, we create a relashionship based on confidence and trust with the other.
The point of contact as a keystone, our body as an arch and the centre, the legs and feet as columns to raise the building of our dance.
How from head to the feet, from the Earth to the sky, with my senses, I established a relationship that makes sense for me or my partner for a better travel .

We will share a lot of games and exercices to let by and through the body and the movement.
After this first step we will continue to explore the flux of our danse with another tool : the kinesphere.
Our kinesphere, its volume, its lines, its dynamic. We will discover how it can simplify our link to the movement and infinitely feed our dance - and how and why to make the volume of our kinesphere more dense or on the contrary make it more porous...
It is also the source of the spiral, that organizes the inner movements of our body but also of the spiral of the two dancers that highlights travel our duo...

I have taught throughout the USA, in Europe, Russia, Mexico and Japan in studios and schools including, Centre National des Art du Cirque (France), DOCH, University of Dance and Circus (Stockholm, Sweden), Canaldanse (Paris), MADE in France (a Washington University Performing Arts Department summer study program), Connecticut College, Prescott College (AZ), New College of California (San Francisco), and several Contact Improv Festivals including Grenoble, Barcelona, and, in 2013, Moab, Budapest, Freiburg.

I began learning CI in San Francisco in 1988, as a member of Contraband/Sara Shelton-Mann, with J. Curtis, K. Hennessy and others. We mixed CI with other forms, experimenting wildly. We used CI to respond to spiritual and political concerns.
CI remains a context for various kinds of liberation and community building, a laboratory of hybrid play, a physical prayer, a contemporary expression of the ecstatic dance lineage, a radical practice of decentralized power, an apt metaphor for myriad scales of relationship, a hothouse of connection and empowerment.
