Contact Improvisation with Live Music

Curious about ways your whole body can move and connecting improvisationally in a duet, a trio, or the full group? In this focused jam, we will start with guided contact improvisation fundamentals and then flow together into an open score weaving dance, play, and collaborative improvisation with the collective. Sounds and movement conversations from the exquisite to the mundane are all very welcome. Come for some intentional wiggling, playful contact, and a gorgeous co-created live soundscape.

Liquid Contact ~ A Warm Water Jam

Come take a dip in the pool for Liquid Contact with John & Merrick! Together we’ll immerse ourselves in deep presence and fluid surrender, diving into the art of listening and mutual attunement in warm waters. Through platonic and joyful intimacy, we’ll gradually release layers, play, and open up to the water as a loving guide. All are welcome, seasoned water creatures and first-timers, to experience this otherworldly zero-gravity container of connection and exploration.
