Title: Syncing body time when out of touch

For practitioners of contact improvisation, the pandemic literally suspended time. Safety measures called for a suspension of physical touch, the central aspect of the collaborative improvisation in this movement form. Attempts to transfer this practice online brought a shift in my personal practice, towards both an internalised perception of embodiment, and also a moment of deeper reflection on the body politics of touch and creative spaces where close physical engagement is the norm. This presentation includes segment inviting participants to experience “body time” in somatic practice and to connect consciousness of physical sensation with lived experiences.
