The question what is Contact Improvisation can be followed by another question – is Contact Improvisation a performance art?

Can we take not only the physical principles that have already been embedded in contemporary dance and partnering sequences but come back to the early spirit of contact improvisation and see it as a performance for a wider audience than only the people participating in it.

Can we take the awareness of Improvisation with the physicality of contact to create an instant composition piece that is not only based on contact improvisation but rather is a contact improvisation piece?

Going out of the philosophical aspects and rather questioning through an experimental approach, creating specific scores to be further developed.

The workshop is intended for improviser’s, dance makers, contemporary dancers and people with contact improvisation experience.
