Welcome to the eighth year of our wonderful Portugal Contact Festivals. Immerse yourself with us in an intensive experience in the Contact world.
We have invited international artists and teachers who combine many years of teaching experience, professional choreography work, intensive movement research and performance experience. When choosing the facilitators, we consciously paid attention to a balance that reflects the diversity of the contact improvisation scene. The program consists of technique units, research laboratories, score jams, bodywork and performance sequences.
Closest Airport is Faro by taxi it takes about 25 minutes and costs are 30-40€. There is also a train from Faro central station to Tavira (3-4€) and from there you would need to take a taxi, costing 8-10€. Exact location we will send you after registration.
We recommend to bring your car if you have one. We are about 15 min drive from the ocean. And only 5 min walk to little sweet village with ATM, Cafe, Shop, Postoffice.
There is WIFI Internet, but its slow! Use this days to live the new luxury of being UNPLUGGED and RELAXE completely.
Our wonderfully international team of chefs prepare Mediterranean vegetarian dishes with love and taste. We buy organic food from local farmers as much as possible.
