Ecite 2017 in Tuscania with Nicole CantikContact Improvisation is an improvised dance form based on the communication between two moving bodies that are in physical contact and their combined relationship to the physical laws that govern their motion: gravity, momentum, inertia. The body, in order to open to these sensations, learns to release excess muscular tension and abandon a certain quality of willfulness to experience the natural flow of movement. 

Alertness is developed in order to work in an energetic state of physical disorientation, trusting in one’s basic survival instincts. It is a free play with balance, self-correcting the wrong moves and reinforcing the right ones, bringing forth a physical/emotional truth about a shared moment of movement that leaves the participants informed, centered, and enlivened.

I see CI as a way to re-awake and enjoy fully our sensitivity and playfulness, working on trust, explore curiosity about movement principles out of daily movement patterns.

Guidelines for jams


This are the guidelines that we use in Sunday Contact Jams in Slovenia.

Guidelines for Musicians during the jams


These ideas have been written in order to clarify what are the needs of the dancers during a Contact Improvisation Jam.
The musicians are books to experiment spontaneously musical forms and ideas in order to seek, during the dance, a continuous symbiotic exchange with the dancers. Each influencing the other and vice versa.
