Performance Evening :
Saturday December 1st: Sign up! You have until Thursday, November 29th.
If you would like to perform, here are some guidelines:
This year’s theme to be inspired by: OIKOS 
Oikos, in Greek, means house, home, family and land, in other words, Human Community.
It is within the heart of this precious core that dance is born and transcends all boundaries and it is with the essence of Oikos that we celebrate this year’s Contact Improvisation Festival in Montreal.

1. Performances are a maximum of 6 minutes long. This year we will have a bell that will sound to indicate the timing.

2. Performances are open to Contact-Improvisation and other forms of dance. Poems, songs and all other forms of sharings, will take place in the Peter-Boneham Studio in which the schedule will be given at the opening circle.

3. If your performance is accomapnied by music, a CD with a clear label indicating the title and track number.

4. Performers wanting to perform more than once, can only do so if there is space available after out-of-towners have signed up.

The deadline to send in a proposal is Thursday November 29th at 5pm. Please send us the names of the dancers, title of the piece and the title of your music to Nicoletta and Valérie : prod@contactimpro.org

What’s contact danse?

An invitation to let go in a haven of peace. Dancing, experience the laws of gravity, momentum and balance, that is the contact improvisation.
