11th May festival is back to Kyiv

We invite you to get acquainted with Ukrainian CI community and atmosphere. Dive into the details of contact improvisation with international teachers and practitioners.

“Dance exists as an inspiration against the cultural norms of general passivity that we learn in school, at work, in general behavior in public.” Steve Paxton, “A short history of dance from an outsider’s point of view”

What’s the plan?

  • 8 jams (in the morning and in the evening).
  • Classes by Ukrainian and international teachers.
  • Research labs facilitated by festival guests and participants.
  • Open city performances with festival participants.
  • Dance walking near river Dniper.
  • Experiments: drawing + dance, sound + movement and etc. (open to your ideas).

20 sec video to tease you 🙂

donation will be used.

If (or when) festival will get extra profit (it might happen if we will have over 70 paid participants) we will share this money with local CI communities in Ukraine to support and develop dance practice. We will share this report with festival participants.
