Each first Tuesday of the month, instead of the usual Jam...
We offer a FIRST TUESDAY UNDERSCORE
What is the Underscore? It is a focused structure essentially based on what we regularly do at jams. It requires a basic understanding of Contact Improvisation and participation in a introductory, "talk-through", at least once, before you attend an Underscore. (The talk-through is also open to any that want to review the practice.)
More about the Underscore, here.
The Underscore is a focused practice.
- We strive to have a sense of the whole dance - the participants and the space.
- We go through the series of stages of the Underscore, more or less, as a group.
- We arrive at the beginning and stay until the end of an Underscore.
(Please don't come for just part of the evening.)
- We don't interact conversationally during the main part of the Underscore. Also, before making loud noises, please consider that what might be pleasing to you, may well be a distraction to others.
The schedule for First Tuesday Underscores
- 6:30pm Doors open
- 6:45-7:30pm Talk-through (This will start on time. Please be prompt)
- 7:30pm Gather for the "pow wow". We begin the practice together.
(If you have already participated in a talk-through you may arrive and warm up as early as 6:30. Just be ready to begin at 7:30pm.)
- 9:45pm Final resolution. We end the movement practice together, and move into reflection, then group sharing which ends at about 10:15.
- 10:30pm Out of the building
Cost structure for the evening (pay at the door, only)
- $10-25 sliding scale. Please pay as much as you can so we can meet our expenses and still make this event as affordable as possible.
