We are very excited to bring forward this meeting PORTUGAL CONTACT IMPROVISATION GATHERING. We had to make a few adjustments due the politics of epidemic  restrictions. Please bear and read what has changed.

Nancy Stark Smith died in May 2020 when social distance was mandatory in Portugal. Never Contact Improvisation has been a radical practice like it is now. We like to honor both, the life's practice of Nancy Stark Smith and instigate CI in COVID times. How radical became CI, how much are we available to explore this dance, and how much is at stake when we do so are questions we start from.

Portugal Contact Festival is being adapted to the restrictions of the epidemic needs. Itay cannot join us this time so we decided to focus on the Portuguese teachers scene.

We designed a program from Wednesday 16th to Sunday 20th with the morning workshop intensive with Rita Vilhena and classes of movement exploration on land with Bárbara Ramos, Alexa Papa, Howard Sonenklar and in water with Samuel Del Bello. 

Check our website http://forgotten-land.com/portugal-festivals/portugal-contact-gathering/ and new program 

We make space for individual choice to be heard and a hygiene protocole to be respected, day by day. The negotiation between feeling safe and the need to dance in contact will be made collectively and individually.

The gathering is the start of a tribute to Nancy Stark Smith that Portugal Contact Festival and Extravagante CI Jam are starting together. This collaboration wishes to look into the heritage of CI, means of inclusion and expansion of Contact Improvisation in the Portuguese community.
