Contact Improvisation is an improvised movement form set in motion by American choreographer Steve Paxton in 1972. The dance is based on the communication between two moving bodies that are in physical contact and their combined relationship to the physical laws that govern their motion— gravity, momentum, inertia, friction, etc. To open to these sensations, the body learns to release excess muscular tension and abandon a certain quality of willfulness to experience the natural flow of movement. Practice includes rolling, falling, being upside down, following a physical point of contact, and supporting and giving weight. Alertness is developed to work in an energetic state of physical disorientation and to trust one's basic survival instincts. Contact improvisations are spontaneous physical dialogues that range from stillness to highly energetic exchanges.”
(Definition of CI by Nancy Stark Smith)

During a CI dance the focus is on the physical sensation of touch, on leaning, giving and receiving support, off balance places, disorientation, on falling together and it is on the physical dialogue between the partners. Movement vocabulary is defined by giving and receiving weight, momentum, inertia, gravity and rolling, jumping, lifting and falling. The dances are reflecting the openness towards the inner focus and the continuum of movement.
