Description:
The Underscore is a dance improvisation structure developed by Nancy Stark Smith. Based in Contact Improvisation (CI), it comprises a spectrum of states, from quiet, internal activity to high-energy, interactive dancing. Undirected; for research and play. Open to all familiar with Contact Improvisation. Deepen your practice with a "talk-through". Underscore NYC offers “talk-throughs” to introduce Underscore's 50+ glyphs and concepts. Important Note: Stay from start to finish.

1:00 - 2:00 • Somatic Talk-through and warm up with the Glyphs/introduction to the underscore glyphs, and a different CI skill each month.

2:00 - 4:30 • The Underscore begins promptly with the gathering circle, and ends with the harvest circle.

Underscore Facilitators: Luce Mahler, Ilona Bito, Funda Gul, Adam Lempel, Elise Knudson, and Nicole Touzien.
