Hello dear lovers and friends of Vilnius CI & Performance minifestival, lovers of contact improvisation and even curious beginners and followers!
Welcome ♥ to a cosy and warm ambience to study and co-create together.
You will meet contact dancers and teachers from Lithuania, other Baltic and neighbour countries.
Stop, make a pause, right where you are, now.
Listen to your inner movement, listen to your life.
Open up to the life and people around you, listen…
We love this minifestival, we want to meet again in real!
Yes, we are still limited. Let’s meet from where we are, with those around us for 3 hours online meeting.
When: 18th of December, 16:00-19:00 Paris Time | 17:00-20:00 Vilnius time
We will share the magical ambiance and what is precious for us today, dancing, talking, listening, smiling… 🙂
This year we propose us an interlude. A pause in joyful serenity. We will practice the state of being whole and undivided.
We invite us to meet for this 15th (& online) edition respecting the laws of our regions concerning hygiene and isolation, by using IT communication support – zoom. Thus,
– if you are isolated alone, you will be able to connect through the image with others,
– if you are isolated with your dancing partner, family or friends, we encourage you to participate as mini-group,
– and if you can still organize live meetings in you region, we encourage you to do that and join us as a bigger group
for some shared moments together and all over the world.
We will have a class of CI, with elements of Samara Yoga and meditation in movement. And of course a Jam with fascinating and uplifting live music from Wolfram Maria Schröckenfuchs.
Happy to meet you soon!
