BOULDER CONTACT LAB NOTES
The Underscore is a framework for practicing and researching dance improvisation that Nancy Stark Smith has been developing since the early 1990’s. It is a score that guides dancers through a series of “changing states,” from solo deepening/releasing and sensitizing to gravity and support; through group circulation and interaction, Contact Improvisation engagements, opening out to full group improvisation with compositional awareness, and back to rest and reflection.
