CI in Nature 2019

Contact Improvisation & Dance in Nature Residencies

For these events, we meet in beautiful West Algarve, near Aljezur, at Sitio da Loba on a nice land plot with garden, kitchen, terrace and inside chill area, and self-organize some dancing holidays, with lots of Contact Improvisation, beach time, cooking and enjoying beautiful nature. See pictures at the bottom of this page for some impressions from the past.

The idea is to simply share the cost (infrastructure, cars and food, see below), and have a good time at “Sitio da Loba”, which is the incubator/predecessor of a larger dancers’ village site.

Currently we have no separate events planned (but the pre- and post- Camp of the 1st Festival), but we are open for your proposals.
