In Amsterdam we danced a “Full Underscore Practice” with the GUS 2018

 in confluence with the weekly Saturday Amsterdam Jam as a “Modified Jam”.


In the report of our GUS-harvest of 2017 you can read more about the Amsterdam set-up.
A longer report like that, including a more complete/specified 

sharing of the 2018 harvest,
may follow also for this year as I find this a possibly valuable given for our community. KL]

+Plus a few dancers whose name we might have missed, and/or who want to go unmentioned.
Dancers mentioned only by their first name either indicated preference for this mention,
or didn’t write their name on the list. (Probably because I forgot to remind them of this. Sorry.)

Excerpt of some notes of the sharing,
as written down by Lana Korotkova:
– interested in a person, and in not being stuck in one dance
– causelessness
– opportunity for an elongated arrival and a different depth
– noises outside intertwine with dances
– the focus was very deep
– Slow down. Take time. Graze.
– You don’t have to dance with one person.
– disconnected connected – different phases for each one of us – but we’re all in it
– The Underscore is a container.
– connecting all over the world
– sameness but differentness
– growing together
– witnessing different waves
– space for solos
– The Underscore gives me the right to be in a phase for as long as I like.
– feeling free to graze, it’s a relief
– feeling free and comfortable
– much more 3-4-5 people dancing than usual
– we hold the space together
– respect and sacredness
– importance of framing
– Having a common mindset
