SET GO is a Contact Improvisation Research and Performance ensemble founded in 2016 by dancers Shura Baryshnikov, Aaron Brando, Paul Singh, Bradley Teal Ellis, and Sarah Konner. Though all are interdisciplinary artists, each identifies Contact Improvisation as a primary practice and are lead researchers and educators in the field, both nationally and internationally. Collectively, setGO has been practicing the form of Contact Improvisation for over 60 years.
The SET GO ensemble shares a love for whimsical, whole-hearted, virtuosic improvisation; they have been dance-making together since 2009. The group has performed at the Moving Arts Lab (Earthdance, MA), the RISD Museum Open Rehearsals, for the Institute for the Study of Environment and the Society at Brown University, Providence Fringe Festival, and the Everybody Moves Festival at the School for Contemporary Dance and Thought in Northampton, MA. They have developed pedagogy together as part of the CI Ground Research laboratory project since 2010.
