The Underscore is a vehicle for incorporating Contact Improvisation into a broader arena of improvisational dance practice; for developing greater ease dancing in spherical space—alone and with others; and for integrating kinesthetic and compositional aspects while improvising. It allows for a full spectrum of energetic and physical expressions, embodying a range of forms and changing states. Its practice is familiar yet unpredictable.
(Nancy Stark Smith)

A quote by Nancy Stark Smith (from “Caught Falling”)
“You can’t do it wrong”
As long as your intention is to do the Underscore (and you haven’t inadvertently mistaken this for a tango class or nightclub), you can relax and assume that your actions and interpretations won’t be “wrong”.

Pablo (Pawel Wysocki) is a musician who grew up between the  blues, the rock, the jazz and the folk.
He is a songwriter and composer, and used to be a singer and guitar player in the Polish band Transcendent. As a musician he participated in theater performances and musical projects. In the past two years he has worked as improviser for dancers, playing the acoustic guitar.

Yaniv has enthusiastically explored Contact Improvisation in the past few years. It has been a home for him to return to his movement and to take it with him on his travels. He has been studying and exploring his movement with Nancy Stark Smith, Daniel Lepkoff, Julyen Hamilton, Mirva Makinnen and many other wonderful teachers, dancers and friends. He incorporates in his practice Human Design, Vipassana and Yoga. Photography and Music are part of his artistic life journey. He has also worked as Software Consultant for 12 years. www.yanivginton.com
