GUS 2017 Facilitators Packet has arrived!

Hi everyone,

We are getting ready for our global connection through dancing! May we all be inspired and moved by this phenomenal practice. Personally, it doesn't matter about the people who are non-synchronous - this allows us to time travel together!

Nancy Hughes and I are right now hanging out on skype. We both need to go to bed!

Get the GUS 2017 Packet in numerous ways:
GUS Packet google doc (without GUS 2017 MAPS)
GUS 2017 MAPS google doc

Facilitators have the Packet in your email as well! You will best be prepared by reading it throughly...

Sign up for Live Harvesting. You must accept the invitation that was sent. If you have another email address you want me to make an "Author" so you can post, let me know.

Check out all the GUS 2017 sites. Come dance on Saturday!

screen shot jpg of the MAP last year: GUS 2016

(The image here is a jpg - don't mistake it for the map itself)

Above is a screenshot I took with Grab.  If you have a Mac it has it for sure.

Open the map in a browser and size it to fit your screen ~

Take Screen Shots with your Mac's program Grab (do a spotlight search "Grab" to find it)

Hold down shift + command + A and then you can drag a square and capture a screen shot and save it to your desktop as a tiff.  (If you open with the application Preview you can "save as" and make it a jpg if that's better for you too.)

Then you can print your tiff or jpg with a printer.

Use the Grab application. It is on your Mac for sure.

Best and love

GUS 2016
for Small Dance Stand facings

The Facing List makes a zigzagging line from east to west (or west to east) around the planet.  You'll face a site either northeast or southeast of you for the first small dance stand, and a site northwest or southwest of you for the second small dance stand.

For the first Small Dance Stand, face the site below you in this list.
For the second Small Dance Stand, face the site above you in this list.
The number following the site is the degree of the longitude.
Seconds and minutes are only included if they help clarify which site is next.
W indicates west.
E indicates east.
SKIP NON-SYNCHRONOUS SITES because they are not dancing in time with the rest of the sites.

The longitude assignments are approximations.  The exact address of your site may have a slightly different longitude than the one listed, but probably not (especially if we're only looking at the degree which is the grossest aspect of the measurement).

GUS Map 2016

Dear facilitators and Global Underscore 2016 dancers,

The GUS 2016 map includes 53 sites all around the world!

You can play with it.  You can swipe, drag and zoom in and out and take screenshots to print to post on the wall for you Underscore. (the markers in the Atlantic Ocean just tell you what the marker's colors mean)

Look out for a facing list with instructions to help with the small dance stands.

You can use the map to make sense of which city/site you'll face.  Remember the first Small Dance Stand faces the next site to the east (northeast or southeast) and the second Small Dance Stand closes by facing the next site to the west (northwest or southwest).

Happy Dancing!  So happy your reading this and getting ready for Global Underscore.

Welcome to the Global Underscore gathering of 2016. We are thrilled that we are all coming together this year with such full and rich variety. Thank you for your presence and organization!

We will be sending you the final list of Global Underscore sites and the Facing List for the Opening and Closing Stands by Friday, June 17.  But for now, here is some Technology* and Harvest information so you can prepare accordingly. 

*To Participate in Live Streaming and Second Life for GUS 2016 Isabel Valverde will need your tech info by June 15.  Keep reading to find out what to send her.

Dear Global Underscore Facilitators

We have some special technology components for our connections during the 
Global Underscore 2016. Isabel Valverde will be working with us to make it happen! 

Isabel will be hosting a virtual Global Underscore satellite through Second Life, a multi-user virtual environment.  Isabel will also help you post live streaming on the Global Underscore Blog.

We will also be posting Harvest on the blog. 

Read through the list of opportunities below.  You will have the option to either actively participate or to simply visit and observe any one of these technology components. 

Global Underscore 2016 (from simplest level to most complex):

1) Share material from your regular Harvest circle:
Send your Harvest-text and/or a small selection of photos or a short video from your Global Underscore experience- to for the Global Underscore blogspot. Nancy Hughes and Brandin Steffensen will be adding your harvest directly on the blog. 

2) Local real-time Harvest:
Have a computer somewhere in the space with a Word document open (or sheets of paper) for people to write (or draw) during the Underscore. This can be harvested afterward on the blog. (See #1.)

3) Live streaming video:This is live video streaming from any/every site that can manage it, collected for real-time viewing on
For this option, your site will need:

1. Two laptops (one to send and one to receive)
2. A webcam (the camera in the computer that's used for skyping is enough, or you can
input from a separate camera. Webcams are simpler and recommended.)
3. High-speed internet access (not a dial-up modem)
4. Someone capable of setting it up and testing it prior to the date of the Global
For detailed instructions click This Link
What will happen:

You will establish a free individual video broadcast channel (on the ustream platform: or bambuser.comthat will be gathered together with other Global Underscore video streams by Isabel.
***To simply view video streams without doing your own stream, visit: the Global Underscore Blogspot

4) Global Underscore 2016 on Second Life:

For Global Underscore 2016, Portuguese dancer/researcher Isabel Valverde will facilitate a Global Underscore satellite in Second Life, a multi-user 3D virtual environment. Senses Places project will be the virtual host for this Global Underscore site, Odyssey Contemporary and Performance Simulator at Second Life.

At this special location on Second Life, avatar Underscore participants and audience will join the Underscore practice from different remote places around the world. Also at this location, the Ustream and/or bambuser video channels from Global Underscores worldwide will be screened for viewing and possible interaction.

There will be a Ustream channel streaming the Second Life Global Underscore site at Odyssey Contemporary and Performance Simulator at Second Life. That stream will be embedded on Odyssey Contemporary Art and Performance Simulator SLURL:

Technology Spotlight

Steps to set up your video streamI
3.1. Create a channel for video streaming with USTREAM, or Bambuser.
Go to these links for instructions.

3.2. Name your channel as follows: gus2016_(your site's location).

3.3.  Test if you can broadcast.
Test the recording function:
Start broadcasting and go to the channel's link to check if you can see it, or click on the title of your channel at the top left corner of the broadcast window. This opens a new window where your live broadcast will show up.
Suggestion: If you want to record (and you are comfortable starting and ending the recording function without too much distraction) try recording at any of these three times:
a. opening small dance (00:50; 50 minutes into the 4 hour Underscore) 
b. 30 minutes during Open Score (2:15-2:45) 
c. closing small dance (3:55)
3.4. Send the URL of your channel to in order to be gathered at the Global Underscore blog page.If you have any tech questions, email isabel at

Steps to set up Second Life Now

In order to visit and participate in the Global Underscore Satellite @ Second Life someone at your GU site needs to:

4.1. Have a computer with good graphics and  internet connection. Note that Mac stopped supporting video on SL.

4.2. Create an account and choose an avatar (free) @

4.3. Download and install Second Life (free) @ Please check the technical requirements.

4.4. Open the Second Life application and Go to the SL Underscore Satellite site at Senses Places space: SLURL: 
(You can also go to any other location at your choice, or simply login without choosing a place. You will be teleported to a welcome site where ava

tar hosts wait to help you ☺)

4.5. Get accustomed to the interface: the avatar and the 3d environment. It is not difficult, but it will require more or less practice, depending on your computer interface and videogame skills and literacy. 

Examples: a) learn to use the arrow keys to move the avatar in space, b) learn to use the chat window, voice, or animations to communicate, c) learn about the menus and Inventory, d) learn how to edit the avatar appearance, e) camera operation, f) learn to intera

ct with objects in the environment, g) learn how to teleport, etc. See a video demonstration. 

In principle, this will enable you to observe, interact, and improvise at the site with other avatars and video stream images of other GU sites projected on to screens/browser windows. 

4.6. At the VGU site we will share animations for your avatar to improvise with. You can play with then, including changing, accumulating, looping, and move your avatar in space while animated. The ideal is that you can put it to dance so you can dance also with the moving entities. Additionally, we share a webcam interface (from Senses Places) that allows your movement to interact with the ava

tar. This interface instructions and the animations are available in one object at the virtual site :D

4.7. If you are at one GU site streaming a channel, you will be able to see it there along with other streams. You will only have to copy paste your site's channel URL link onto one of the screens available at the site as server windows. 

4.8. Watch, experiment, improvise!

Welcome to the Global Underscore 2016. This year's Global Underscore will take place on Sunday, June 19 from 4-8 pm UTC +2. 

UTC stands for Coordinated Universal Time
 EDT is Eastern Daylight Time or UTC-4
The Underscore is a long-form dance improvisation structure developed by Nancy Stark Smith and practiced worldwide. The form includes contact improvisation and allows for a full spectrum of physical forms and changing states, often including periods of quiet internal activity and other times of higher energy and interactive dancing. The Underscore's undirected practice affords simultaneously a framework for research, a forum for play, and an opportunity to experience collective improvised composition. 

Global Underscore was originally conceived in 2000 and organized for a decade by French dancer Claire Filmon
in collaboration with Nancy Stark Smith. Coinciding with the summer solstice, this annual event invites dancers at sites all around the world to practice the Underscore simultaneously and share their experiences with a global community of practitioners.  Now in its 16th year, Underscore NYC proudly hosts Global Underscore 2016.  
We enthusiastically invite you to join us physically and energetically, in time and in space. With Nancy's direction and your participation, we will surely create an amazing event together!

Sunday, June 19, 4-8 pm (Berlin, UTC +2) 
(10 am-2 pm EDT)
We will be joining Nancy and Mike in Berlin, Germany.
Nancy Stark Smith and Mike Vargas will be in Berlin, hosting an Underscore there on Sunday June 19, 4-8 pm  UTC +2.  Underscore NYC will be hosting their monthly Underscore practice in NYC, coordinating across time zones to dance in time with Berlin-and YOU- from 10 am - 2 pm EDT.

We invite you to look at the information posted here and let us know if you'd like to join!

Thanks and happy dancing!!


Bailamos en un espacio amplio (Salón Camargo) con piso de madera y grandes ventanales, el mismo que el año anterior. Domingo por la mañana, comienzos del invierno... No hizo tanto frío esta vez y tuvimos que abrir puertas y ventanas. Más de cien personas participamos en la celebración que coincidió con el Día del Padre.

Algunas cosechas compartidas:
    ⁃    el ritmo de la vida manifestado en la presencia de un bebé con quien sintonizamos todo el tiempo;
    ⁃    una nueva oportunidad para el autoconocimiento, la conciencia;
    ⁃    la alegría de tener un ritual para compartir en esta especie de gran familia que somos ...
    ⁃    ... considerando al planeta y a los otros en el planeta ...
    ⁃   ... imaginando un gran fuego donde tirar lo que queremos que quede en el pasado e intencionar lo que queremos para el futuro en este nuevo ciclo.

Gracias SIEMPRE por la danza compartida!!
Andrea, Cristina y Laura.

Geneva Harvest

GUS 2015 Geneva Harvest final.doc


21 June 2015
4–8 pm
Maison des Arts du Grütli, 3rd floor studio
Geneva, Switzerland 

with Nancy Stark Smith (facilitator) and Mike Vargas (music)

organized by Geneva CI Association (Elinor Radeff, Paola Gianoli, Wassim Fatouh, and others)

Elinor Radeff, Wassim Fatouh, Alexandre Guex, Anne Expert, Christelle Boutoille, Claire Ginet, Corinne Fiechter, Danielle Marx, David Quint, Denis Dal Molin, Dominique Castelnau, Elinor Radeff, Eloise Deschen, Isabel Claus, Jean-Baptiste Meyer, Jesse Schnell, Julie Lamoine, Kazu, Laure Massias, Lou Sturm, Mafalda Ledo, Magaly Bourquin, Maren Sandmann, Mathieu Chappuis, Monique Kroepfli, Nathalie Baumann, Nazario Branca, Nina Hipp, Pamela Ranieri, Patrice Couillez, Peter Aerni, Raphaëlle Mozzi, Rahsan, Ronny Bourcy, Simona Dilu, Simon Wenger, Thea Rytz, Urs Bleuler, Urs Stauffer, Wassim Fatouh, Xavier Vasseur, Zina Freiburg

After many years of writing “Geneva” on the Facing List for Global Underscores from elsewhere, it was fun to finally BE HERE for one of them.

We gathered in a spacious upstairs studio in the Grütli arts building on a warm summery day in Geneva. Mike and I had just arrived from Spain on Friday and on Saturday we met with the Geneva team at a café in the nearby park to organize: the printing of the maps, the buying and making of the watermelon/lime/mint snack (I loved doing this!), the sound system, the technology, the art supplies, etc. 

We were surprised and extremely moved to learn that the hallways of the Grutli building were being used to house African refugees for the time being, as their limbo status was being sorted out by the government. A tall stack of mattresses (like from the Princess and the Pea story) towered at the end of each hallway, with a variety of small items left behind when the young men sleepily left in the morning by 9. Boxes of vegetables and food fixings were stashed in the lobby of the building for dinner meal prep. The contrast in their circumstances and those of us participating in the Global Underscore in Geneva were close and sharp and poignant, and we carried this into our practice. 

(The following week, during our workshop in Geneva, every morning I’d arrive to a hallway full of sleeping men. It was very quiet and peaceful. I would gingerly have to wake up whoever was sleeping in front of the studio door, who would groggily but graciously move their mattress elsewhere so we could get into the studio and start to clean and set up. One guy in particular was very kind and helpful in waking the deep sleepers. We never spoke—they were always gone by the time I got back out into the hallway after setting up the studio—but I coincidentally saw him on our last day as we were leaving. I gave him some cards of our dancing with a Thank You message written on the back. I wonder what they would have thought of our practice. I wonder how we might have connected if we’d have stayed longer.)

Back to the Global Underscore day: As we were setting up the studio, Wassim and Elinor were giving the talk-thru in the hallway (next to a meeting about and with the refugees) to a large group of contacters from many places in Switzerland, France, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Turkey, Japan, USA, and Mexico. They finished just as it was time to come in and begin the Global Underscore.

I always get so excited during the Arriving and Pow-Wow (name still in transition) phases of the Global Underscore. “We have a date with the world,” I think and say, as I watch the clock during our circle gathering, so as not to miss our opening facing—Strasbourg, France! Hello, Dani and others!

Mike had a special giant drum head—almost 3 feet in diameter—that we borrowed from Elinor’s house. What a great sound! Mike enjoyed integrating it into his menagerie of instruments for the occasion.

Below are a few Real-Time Harvest notes written during the Underscore on a computer table set up in the space, on which another computer was tuned to the Second Life Global Underscore site. Also below is an impressively fast and accurately typed transcript (thank you, Wassim!) of remarks made around the circle during the Sharing. 

As we got close to our appointment for the Stand facing Barnave, France, at the end of the Global Underscore, we hadn’t yet gotten around the circle for sharing and decided to “jump the frame,” and come back into the circle after our final Stand, to finish our Sharing. It relieved the tension and was fun to feel that although we were technically out of the frame of GUS15, we could stretch the frame to include our last comments. And THEN ring the bell.  DING DING DING!

Thank you so much, Brandin and Nancy, for coordinating another memorable Global Underscore for all of us!

Nancy, Mike, and the Geneva GUS participants


noisy outside, quiet inside

Wassim : Je danse aujourd’hui pour les requérants d’asile. Pour que leur pérégrination se termine et qu’ils trouvent un lieu d’accueil où ils seront acceptés et où ils construiront un foyer paisible.

Ignorant fragmentation of wisdom

A place to practice 
A practice to place
To elaborate space
Space of intuition 
Means of repulsion 
Explorate attraction 
Easy lines
Lifts you know
All means of practicing space
Space of spontaneity
You need all the flops
The vanity 
The experience
Big flopping machine

Une forêt d’êtres…humains?
À l’envers à l’endroit jusqu’à en perdre la tête et retrouver la parole du mouvement, du corps libre et joyeux

Alles was kommt, alles was springt, alles was ist, alles was dampft, alles was nicht bleibt, alles was ver, alles was ent, alles was über, vor, war.

I kept meeting a woman, again and again, we didn’t even have a dance, we just met, and each time it felt like an old, close friendship, the happiness of feeling familiar, close belonging, love – and in fact, I don’t know this woman, I saw her for the first time today.


Nancy : delightful coincidence  on the wall there were stripes of shadows and light : big moment, my eyes went outside and the mountains had the same stripes. That made me happy.

Elinor: j’ai beaucoup apprécié d’avoir une danse de contact issue du regard: amusant et intéressant. Surprenant.

Simon : J’ai adoré la musique. J’avais peur mais j’ai adoré. Merci. J’ai aussi adoré notre jeu sur le radiateur. J’ai aussi appris aujourd’hui à savoir si une personne accepte de danser avec moi ou non. Conscient des petits signes.

Kazu : Je pense que je ne dois pas réfléchir. Pas de but, on partage simplement. Simple. Simple. 

Isabelle : La pastèque était très bien. Une chose vécue, il y a de la forme, de l’espace, c’est bon et c’est partageable. Ca va bien avec la menthe. Il y a des montagnes derrière. Expérience c’est celle de la durée. Partager avec quelqu’un dans l’espace. 

Raphaëlle : J’ai regoûté avec l’underscore à la matière. Une belle matière à danser. Ça me donne de l’énergie et j’ai beaucoup aimé cette matière (en rapport avec ce qui se passe dans le bâtiment (requérants))

Eloise : Passé par plein d’esprits différents. Ce qui m’interpelle c’est qu’il y a beaucoup de temps et à la fois pas assez. On ressent l’énergie et un feeling. J’aurais aimé dansé avec d’autres personnes.

Dominique : Merci pour la pastèque et l’expérience. J’ai savouré prendre le temps avec moi-même et avec les autres. Merci pour cette qualité. 

Mafalda : Il y a eu un moment magique surprise par la musique, je me suis arrêtée et j’ai vu tout le monde WOW. Tout le monde était beau, belles couleurs. Ca a allumé quelque chose en moi.

Monica : I enjoyed being playful. Thank you ! Joué avec tout le monde. Je n’ai pas eu l’occasion de connecter avec tout le monde. Pas avec Nancy. 

Christelle : J’ai passé un très bon moment. Merci.

Julie : Je suis heureuse d’avoir partagé ce moment avec vous. Apprécié les couleurs. Les dégradés. La délicatesse et la danse avec Urs. 

Lou : J’ai aimé de sentir le groupe connecté et très ouvert. Danser à deux mais ça changeait souvent.

Danielle : J’ai eu plaisir à regarder aussi dans la présence. J’ai beaucoup apprécié le silence à la fin d’une manière savoureuse.

Ronni : J’ai eu l’impression de jouer aussi tout l’après-midi et aussi d’être dans le grazing ou short engagement. More playful. J’ai voyagé. Très ludique. 

Magaly : J’ai eu beaucoup de plaisir et apprécié d’avoir le temps. Le silence aussi. D’être dans la présence, le regard sans parler. Se parler autrement. Très agréable. 

Clair : J’ai aimé la synchronicité des engagements et des désengagements aussi. Merci beaucoup.

JB : J’ai apprécié la musique. Elle s’intégrait dans la danse. Des moment amusants, notamment quand Mike a chanté. J’ai beaucoup ri à l’intérieur.

Simon : I liked a lot the compositions in space. Strong connections and moments. Thank you for the sounds Mike.

Monique: deux mots: Précipice et débris. 

Nathalie: j’ai eu beaucoup de gaps mais je les ai aimés. Merci pour la musique.

Corinne : Merci à Nancy d’avoir organisé la jam. Assez fou car on était nombreux et il y avait une entente.

Patrice. Apprécié la fluidité entre le groupe et les individus. Apprécié la musique et les différents rythmes.

Alex : Moment très fort avec la small danse et la connexion. Je me sens un peu confus. Beaucoup de couches, les gens que je connais. De sentir les autres underscore en même temps, c’était fort !

Anne : J’ai aimé la petite danse vers Strasbourg et ouvrir mon regard vers la montage en pleine danse. 

Maren: I was wondering what the connexions made to me. I remembered them at the beginning but then I forgot. The music was quite strong.

Matthieu: J’ai beaucoup aimé les jeux qu’il y a eus et les différents rôles qu’il y a eu dans ces jeux. Merci!

Simona : Thank you Nancy and Mike for the music and to all of you.

Peter: J’avais l’impression d’un corps très grand. Merci.

Théa : I was very touched by the faces at the beginning and I felt connected in a light way. I kept meeting Clair. It felt familiar even if we didn’t know each other. I felt happy with this connection. 

Nazario: J’ai eu une très belle danse avec une personne et au moment où je suis sorti de ce duo et quand j’en suis sorti j’ai vu le groupe et c’était un grand moment.

Onkar : J’avais peur de la durée. Premier underscore. Peut-on faire plus long ? 

Urs : Quand je regardais au début les visages, les gens que je connais, je les reconnais mais sans plus mais les gens que je ne connais pas, je les découvrais à travers leurs visage. Content d’avoir eu tellement de gens que je ne connaissais pas.

Sandra : Il y avait le thème de la maison car je viens d’ici mais je n’y habite plus. Je fais du contact dans le monde ailleurs mais plus ici. Ca a bouclé la boucle.

Laure : Pour moi beaucoup la question de l’observation. Très proche de l’idiot bouton. Parfois c’était avant parfois après. Beaucoup de liens avec les sens qui venaient de l’extérieur. 

Wassim :  moi aussi j’ai vu la belle coïncidence des rayures sur le mur qui formaient l’image de barreaux d’une cage et Nancy et Christelle étaient toutes deux contre le mur et contre ses barreaux et elles faisaient des gestes de battement d’ailes d’oiseaux et à un moment elles ont pris leur envol hors de la cage. Je ne sais pas si c’était conscient mais c’était très beau. J’ai eu de très belles danses avec quelques personnes. 

Nancy : C’était un espace perméable. Merci à tous de venir improviser et danser tous ensemble.
