What is Contact Improvisation?
Contact improvisation is a practice where the contacting zone with another body is the starting point for exploring movement.
It is frequently performed in “duos” although it does allow the possibility of integrating more than 2 dancers or exploring your own “solo”, in contact with the ground and space that surrounds you.
With great emphasis on the “flow” of the movements and consciousness of self and others, C.I. invites you to think creative and spontaneously, testing your physical abilities. Ibiza Contact Festival intends to oer a platform to share the practise of CI.
