MOMENT BY MOMENT
Driven together by a spark of excitement, two complete strangers are drawn to explore one another without expectation. An internal revolution ignites as they find something in each other they can stop looking for. This piece explores the experience of accepting support and being truly met in this busy world.
Alina is a multi-disciplinary artist, and a graduate of George Brown Theatre School where she was first introduced to Authentic Movement and Contact Improvisation. She has since continued her exploration of movement through giving and taking workshops, and is presently working on achieving a sense of balance in her visual/theatrical artistic practices. Create-Move-Connect has been a really grounding outlet to weave deep, personal meaning into the work with people she genuinely admires, and she’s deeply nurtured by the opportunity to share it with so many people.
I've been dancing for 3 years now at various ecstatic dance events. My first experience with ecstatic dance was 5 rhythms, feeling more inspired to move, i started going to a few other ecstatic dance events, eventually finding my way to contact improv. I believe contact improv has been a very important tool, i've used it to improve my ability to express myself physically in all areas of my life. It is my hope that i continue to open myself up more and more to the playful, open, and often unpredictable nature of life. Dance is a gift, for me it has become another glorious way to express my passion, as well as my thirst for connection with every moment.
