Contact Improvisation 101

Contact improvisation is a spontaneous and playful dance form emphasizing physical connection. Participants explore movement, trust, and communication through bodily contact, creating unique dances at the moment. It's a fun and creative way to connect with others and express yourself through movement.

CI is an old and non-normative -kind of rebellious even for the era- movement technic based on mutual lifting of human body weight. This might sound very technical but as opposed to other modern dances such as Bale and others, a CI dancer does not follow any kind of choreography or steps instead, s/he tries to find the most effortless movement in contact with a partner and ground (or a wall, or a tree) that result in an improvised dance. So, maybe not everyone can dance but everyone can contact and improvise if they want.
