Bucharest Contact Improvisation Festival was created in 2016, currently the only international festival in Romania dedicated to supporting this form of dance. Our desire is to create each year a framework for learning and practicing Contact Improvisation as an art and dance form.
Each year we invite experienced teachers and dancers to facilitate the process through intensive classes, workshops, discussions, laboratories and jam sessions structured in a detailed schedule and supported by a friendly team. In 2019 the Festival is divided into 3 categories: Pre-Festival – 10th – 13th June, Festival + ExtraJamFest 14th – 24th June, Post-Festival 25th – 30th June (retreated in Măgur – Răcătău mountains)
Bucharest Contact Improvisation Festival brings together dancers, performers, somatic practicians, improvisers and people who want to explore and discover their body intelligence and new ways of expressing themselves. This context offers a space where discipline and play blend, and freedom means responsibility for your actions. Our festival is happening in the middle of Bucharest, close to the daily movement of city life. This inspires us to appreciate time, space and clarity both in organization and dance.
