Senior contact improv dance teacher Nita joins me to talk about meeting Steve Paxton, how contact got born, what contact improv is, listening, the physicality of attention, how the mind is embodied, Nancy Stark Smith, enquiry, Touch and Play, eroticism and dance, the “articulation of presence”, “body-mind” and holism, response-ability, the politics of connection, the ISSC, the “speed of attention”, and her vision for the future. A deep passionate opportunity.
