This page is a resource for Contact Improvisation (CI) in the North Carolina ‘Triangle’, including Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, the Peidmont Triad (Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point) and beyond!
We list Contact Improv workshops, classes, jams and performances which happen in the greater Durham, Raleigh, Chapel Hill area as well as regional workshops in Western North Carolina (WNC) and along the East Coast.
Contact Improvisation is a dynamic, living art form with an emphasis on experience and exploration. It sprung from the influences of Daoist martial arts and modern dance, and has developed with great influence from a variety of somatic arts. It can be many things, from a personal practice for health and wellness or spirituality, to a fertile garden for dance choreography and vocabulary, to playground and experimental container.
As Contact Improvisation is such a dynamic and living art, consider looking at some of the many definitions: at ContactImprov.com, Wikipedia, Contact Quarterly, and beyond. But ultimately, as with many of the best things in life, words fall short – consider signing up for a Workshop or even diving in for a weekend, or week long jam experience! You may just be surprised at what you discover 😉
Explore the website and see what’s happening, or signup for our newsletter for updates (no more than once a week, only CI and dance/movement/somatics related)!
