west coast contact improvisation JAM
2022 CANCELLED due to COVID-19
We cannot host an in-person festival in 2022. As people who are used to having movement, improvisation, and touch as regular parts of our personal and social lives, it has been unimaginable that is now the antithesis of our pandemic reality. We can only hope that we are on track to emerge from this resilient and determined to rekindle all that brings us joy in the practice of Contact Improvisation.
We are looking forward to organizing wcciJAM 2023 and dancing with all of you there. Our plan is to bring together the teachers who would have facilitated our 2020 event. We will share more information on our website as our 2023 plans solidify.
In the meantime, we are continuing to reconsider what CI and jamming means: What is the essence of this form? How can we sustain that at a distance? How can we emerge from the residue of “social distancing?” How will it be to see all our old friends and new dancers at a large gathering like wcciJAM?
