We warmly welcome you to the 7th edition of the Kontaktland festival. We will celebrate Contact Improvisation once again, and deepen together into our practice for 6 days in the middle of nature, at Három Kincs Völgye, followed by 6 days jamcamp.
This is a fantastic opportunity to gather the Hungarian community and to welcome international dancers. The festival is settling year by year and we are so thankful to create such a safe, intimate and friendly space all together. This is not just a dream, this is reality!
We are grateful for the success and the atmosfear we created in 2018 and 2019’s festival. Wonderful connections and collaborations were born, which inspired us to continue our work. In 2020 we canceled the festival and offered a self organized camp instead, we were 70 dancers. Since 2021 we took the decision to make a festival again, followed by a Jam Camp.
During 5 years our three word concept was: “community, research and nature”. Just like in previous year, for 2024 we are interested in Contact Improvisation as a somatic practice.
In Contact Improvisation we give so much importance among practitioners to our well being, naturally taking care of our bodies by the way we relate to each other and ourselves. This is a place to honor our body as individuals as well as the collective body. This way somatic practice within Contact Improvisation is for us a condition for our well being and our dance.
