Portugal Contact Festival

5 – 10 Sept 2024     Algarve, Portugal

Contact Improvisation, Live Music & Community

With Mirva Mäkinen (FIN), Sofia Nobre (PT), Samuel del Bello (PT), João Meirinhos (PT), Johanna Wyss (PT/SWISS), Sabrina Danielle Baranda (PT/US), Sergio Camalich (MEX) and more.

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.
