Stuart Phillips has been dancing, teaching & performing CI worldwide for over 31 years with a bend towards exacting psycho-emotional/energetic motivation to responsive movement.
Mike Detweiler has been exploring how to efficiently use the body and mind in acrobatics and martial arts for over a decade. He has used this knowledge to inform his exploration of Contact Improvisation the past six years. Calling on techniques from gymnastics, capoeira, judo, and tai qi, he is always searching for ways to dance more efficiently and effortlessly, and to explore improvisational acrobatics. Working with themes from Buddhism, Taoism, and somatic psychology, he also enjoys exploring mindfulness and radical self expression in the dance.
