International Contact Improvisation and Performance Festival

Dear friends! We are happy to invite you to the Third International Contact Improvisation and Performance Festival!
Dates: 12-20 July 2008.
Every year we improve the Festival!
We bring back the idea of research laboratories, which we had on the festival 2006. This year we were missing that creative magic chaos. We want participants to be drivers of these labs.
We are interested to go on experimenting with jams. We are now infected with beautiful high quality jams.
The festival will start with teachers’ performance. This performance is an invitation for the participants to begin with celebration and meet teachers.
In 2008 4 Russian teachers will lead classes. For us it’s exciting and challenging.
Our interest is to create space where people become happier. We invite you to this space.
