Bristol Contact Improvisation National Jam
Fri, 28 Apr 2017, 18:00 – Mon, 1 May 2017, 16:00 BST
The popular annual Bristol Contact Improvisation National Jam 2017 is back!
The the date of the event is the early UK bank holiday 29 April to 1 st May 2017 and it is happening at the St Matthias Hall in Bristol (Steiner Academy) http://www.st-matthias.org.uk/space/sports-hall
The intention for this year’s edition is to have the performance as a focal point of the entire event, and at the same time keeping it true to its traditional free contact improvisation dance agenda. We have invited Jacqueline McCormick to lead the morning Contact Improvisation and Performance activity and Ruth Janssen to facilitate lunchtime ContactKids activity.
The running format begins on Friday evening, then continues for two long days on Saturday and Sunday and a shorter day on Monday to finish the event at around 5pm.
This co created time frame will include a mixture of jam time and teaching time giving preference to open space exploration.
Scores and performance skills, stage presence and aesthetics, and possibly a performance sharing on one of the evenings are at the heart of us coming together this year, all this will be interspersed with time to explore the local and wonderful Oldbury Court Park as well as our own interests.
Event is open to all levels of experience, we encourage participants to bring their curiosities, research and desires to the event as there could be opportunity to (co)facilitate daytime slots.
