Exploratory Lab
Jan 28 2024

We invite you to a concentrated time of exploration and dance. We invite movers with a firm grounding in Contact Improvisation for a morning workshop facilitated by Irene Sposetti, dancing your questions in a shared exploratory process.

All are also welcome to join the weekly DC-CI Sunday class + jam that happens later in the afternoon and a block away, from 2:00 to 5:00 pm in the Dance Place BAL studio.

Part of the InContact DC Jan 2024 program...

Irene is a versatile performing artist, facilitator, and dancemaker with a multidisciplinary background. Although originally from Italy, Irene has spent more than two decades living and traveling as an independent freelancer across Europe, Asia, and North America. Her artistic path has been shaped by diverse cultural influences and deeply rooted in self-inquiry investigations and practices.

Irene specializes in offering and producing dance training, events, and performances across esteemed institutions such as universities, companies, cultural institutes, festivals, and independent platforms. Her work has reached audiences across the globe and reflects her distinctive and diverse experiences as a passionate explorer and artist.

In 2011 she created BEING MOTION, a platform for collaborating and sharing her artistic practice, to promote independent educational and artistic projects.

Through her dance, she aims to facilitate a heightened state of presence, enabling more conscious, functional, and effortless movement, broadening the technical, creative, and compositional skills of the movers.

She has a particular interest in researching and refining the embodiment of movement biomechanics through the understanding of principles and explorative learning processes. 

She is interested in the “synergy of togetherness”,
the relational, communicative and creative aspects of contact improvisation, partnering and group dancing.  

Furthermore, Irene delves into the somatic, psychological, and relational transformative impacts of dance. Her exploration extends to understanding how the practice heightens self-awareness, breaks down conditioning, instill a sense of empowerment, and contributes to overall well-being. 

Live music and voice are part of her performing and teachings, exploring the link to body and movement and the evocative imaginary power of word, sound and music with dancing.
