Jurij Konjar – Contact improvisation and partnering

Technique, Approached Differently

The Slovenian dancer and choreographer Jurij Konjar’s approach to contact improvisation is based on building relations: how to enter and exit them, how not to lose yourself while relating to a partner, how to develop improvised material and movement together, how to sense and include your partners’ response.

Next to contact improvisation, the workshop also focuses on how to wake up and activate every part of the body. That way, the whole of your body can be active to participate and support you while dancing. What does this have to do with partnering, you might ask? For Jurij it is important to first be able to partner with yourself and recognize your own abilities and needs. Only then you can also partner up with another person.

Jurij Konjar studied at PARTS in Brussels, then started dancing with Les Ballets C de la B. He worked with and for renowned choreographers like Maja Delak, Janez Janša and Boris Charmatz. In 2007, Jurij suffered a head injury, which shifted his focus towards the potential of the present moment. Since then, his stage work has focused more on the performance of improvisation. He collaborated with the experimental dancer and choreographer Steve Paxton in the performances Bound (1982), Flat (1964) and Quicksand (2016). In 2014, Jurij launched Habitat, a nomadic working space for process oriented practices.
