The Underscore is a dance improvisation structure developed by Nancy Stark Smith. Based in Contact Improvisation, 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 CI. 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. 

2:00 - 3:00 • Talk-through/introduction to the underscore glyphs, and a different CI skill each month.

3:00 - 5:45 • The Underscore begins promply with the gathering circle, and ends with the harvest circle. 

Facilitated by Lucy Mahler, with guest facilitators Ilona Bito, Chisa Hidaka, Tamar Kipnis, Elise Knudson, and Nicole Touzien.
