Contact Meets Contemporary offers by the looks of it everything a dancer’s heart can desire – both in theory and practice. However, if you happen to be a beginner, muster your courage and prepare your muscles, as the program demands a minimum of good basic knowledge of CI and/or contemporary dance.
The organisers say:
‘A Contact Festival where Contact Improvisation meets Contemporary Dance.
‘Contact meets contemporary’ wants to inform, support and inspire Contact Improvisation by the knowledge of other contemporary dance forms. It will give tools to open the contact duet for solo, trio or group improvisations. And it will provide space for contemporary movement technique to be purely danced with others. The common ground where we meet is improvisation. Input from somatic approaches will nurture and inform the dancing body. And of course basic CI technique will appear.‘
