Contact meets Contemporary
-24 August 2014 Goettingen/ Germany

Contact meets Contemporary is a Contact Festival that invites and includes the knowledge from other contemporary dance forms. We'd like to see the contact duet open up but also to see contemporary movements being danced in jams.

We wish to deepen and develope a bunch very satisfying elements of the last year's festival, like preparing the jam space for very focussed and open hearted dancing without guided warm ups. We had several little red threads through the festival schedule connecting classes, interactive lectures, awareness practices and jams. And a sense of curiosity, trust and spaciousness in the teachers group informed the festival very nicely.

We are exited about our next try and happy to welcome you! - Your Festival Team
Jörg Hassmann, Daniel Werner, Gabi Neumann and Nadja Schwarzenbach

Das Festival ist wegen seiner Internationalität in englischer Sprache. Wer nur deutsch versteht wird aber dennoch seinen Weg finden.

The intensives will be with:

Kira Kirsch -' Axis Syllabus'
Katarina Eriksson 'Accidental Excellence - or The Joy of Stumbling into Contact'
Tim O'Donnell - 'Clarity in the Unknown'

We are very happy with our teachers group and the inspiring dialogue with them to create a focussed and alive container for dancing, learning and being together. Unfortunately 'contact meets contemporary' overlaps with the Freiburg Festival this year. We tried everything to avoid it. But participants, who also go to Freiburg, are welcome to also join a little later. And Daniel wants to let you know that we'll also have a water jam this time.

Registration open now! @
