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.
Our beloved lecture formats invite a deeper and wider understanding of our practice. Somatic work offers spaces to understand the moving body in a very nurturing way. And of course basic CI technique will appear.

And we are very happy to have a beautiful team of teachers and musicians in 2018 including - highly likely - Alyssa Lynes, Anat Greenberg, Angela-Mara Florant, Anya Cloud, Bernd Knappe, Daniel Werner, Edo Cerder, Elle, Heidi Schnirch, Jörg Hassmann, Kaisa Kukkonen, Kaya Martischius, Kristin Horrigan, Lucia Sanchez, Marielle Gerke, Nadja Schwarzenbach, Nina Wehnert, Otto Akkanen, Paolo Cingolani, Rob Kancler, Sandra Hanschitz and more!
