Contact dance teacher Arye joins me from Tel Aviv. We discuss what can be researched within contact dance, being a contact pioneer in Israel, Judaism and contact, dancing across international borders, what “embodiment” means, “deep embodiment”, judo vs dance vs somatics, body as use vs experience, gestalt therapy, how we’re busy NOT being in contact, anger and sadness, cutting off from ourselves, getting the message from the body, working w/ actors, the language of embodiment, how we’re always dancing, the elusive obvious, circumcision, body as taboo, subtle body shame, hiding being tired and how we as teachers are just reminders of the obvious magic. A slow winding beautiful conversation.
