A Contact Festival where Contact Improvisation meets Contemporary Dance

We are very much looking forward to this year's festival! It has developed really well throughout the last years. There is a lot of focus on learning and dancing, pretty calm and clear energy, not pushy but awake. This year we will try out a few new things to keep it fresh like the 'supported practice'. You'll soonish find it here. 

The Intensives are with...

Tim O`Donnell (USA): The Balance in Listening

Katja Mustonen (Finland/ Germany): Studies on Suspension & Momentum

Sebastian Garcia Ferro (Argentina/ Spain): Composition and Performance Project

'contact meets contemporary' wants to inform, support and inspire Contact Improvisation by the knowledge of contemporary dance. The last years we were focussing on movement technique as a source of support for CI. This year's focus will be more on the improvisational side of the dance. We are interested in the compositional mind that can widen the range of choices in the dance, especially in jamming beyond the couple bubbles.
To counterbalance the improvisational side we intend to bring in some somatic work to inform the dancing body. And of course basic CI technique will appear.

And last but not least: We found a new location with one space more then the years before, a public bath and a park just around the corner.

Happy to meet you in the summer!

Your Festival Team
