Scott Wells
Flying =/= Jumping
A 5 day Intensive on Contact Improv
Jan 19th -23rd, 2011 Victoria, B.C.

This is the workshop where Scott teaches all his crazy lifts. In this Intermediate workshop we will start with clear, satisfying contact in which pleasure is the first teacher. We will practice flying, catching, landing, fluid acrobatics and deft maneuvers. For the acrobatics everyone will work at their own level and will learn best by building group safety and trust-- everyone will do something new. We will learn some repertory and practice taking the aerial work into improv. Jumping =/= Flying because jumping is a muscular action, whereas flying is in the bones and is affected greatly by emotions and attitude. Don’t be scared off by the photo, no-one is required to leap over chairs!

For an example of Scott’s innovative work, check out this 1 minute trailer:
