'contact meets contemporary' wants to inform, support and inspire
Contact Improvisation by the knowledge of other contemporary dance forms. We'd like to see contemporary movements being danced in jams and a wider scale of improvisation opening the contact practice. In a mind- and heartful spirit the festival balances well developed material in classes with various frames for researching, questioning, trying and failing. For this years festival we want to put an extra focus on the improvisational part of the form.

It is a pleasure to see this festival evolving towards more depth,
clarity and freedom. Feel welcome to join us on our next cmc-adventure.

Jörg Hassmann, Daniel Werner, Gabi Neumann and Nadja Schwarzenbach
