The artistic vision of Portugal Contact Gathering 2022 was inspired in the celebration of the 50th anniversary and the desire of coming together to explore it´s movement and potential. How can Contact Improvisation be a tool to rebuild a new system where all living beings have value, worth and different qualities that make them vulnerable?
Was to bring the CI out of the practice studio to an experimental contact with the natural environment and local community. The goal was to take the morning technic learnings to the guided site specific sessions, in a few afternoons at the beach, the farm house and the train station.Why? Because we like explore the potential of affecting people and living beings with kindness and empathy through our dance.
