Kontakt Budapest is Hungary’s biggest contact improvisation festival though they’ve yet to give out a date for this June – they indicated on the website that they will continue this summer so let’s see.
The above video was to promote last year’s contact festival and if it’s a similar affair this time round then there will be the same mix of intensive study, open classes, contact jams and more.
Some of the classes and jams were held in Budapest and others out in the countryside in a village with hot springs. It sounds like a pretty cosy festival. Every contact festival seems to want to present itself as an ‘international contact improv’ event and there probably are plenty of contact improv junkies who go from festival to festival but we imagine it’s largely a Hungarian affair.
