Jam Contact Improvisation
The Contact Jam is organized by the Fundación Espacio Arte and some collaborators every second and fourth thursday in month. We meet in La Casa Centro Cultural, an independet space dedicated to the arts and the off culture in Medellín, to dance and explore with the body, through the physical contact and its possibilities. This jam relates to some techniques in classicla contact improvisation but is not focused on cultivating them. The main point by this encounters is to offer a space and some tools to experience the body and the contact as a place of creativity, liberated from social meanings and prestablished concepts; something not very obvious in a still conservative society, influenced by catholisism and its conceptions of the body. Our public is very diverse and the jam has gain a kind of cult status as a regular event open to anyone who is determined to risk a different approach towards physical contact and dance.
