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
CMC – here we go again! Come, it will be great! We are looking forward to focussed dancing and researching, a calm atmosphere and a light spirit. In order to strenghten the dance we are also feeding other needs outside the dance. Good, fresh organic food is served and nice spaces for hanging out, talking, reading and resting are growing beautifully.
‘contact meets contemporary’ wants to inform, support and inspire Contact Improvisation by the knowledge of other contemporary dance forms. We highly appreciate the intelligence of the contact body – how to deal efficiently with shared weight and the extraordinary multilayerd communication through touch – and wish it to open up for more spacial awareness and solo explorations. We want to provide focussed formats where movements and qualities of contemporary dance classes can be danced. From our experience, we trust that people want to learn in a focussed environment and find links between these two worlds.”
