INTERNATIONAL DANCE FESTIVAL

11th INTERNATIONAL DANCE FESTIVAL

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Warsaw CI Flow is a festival that developed under the influence of trends shaping contact improvisation over the last 11 years. The next two editions of the festival will create space for exploration of contact improvisation as a cultural and social phenomenon. When building the festival program, we think holistically and address various needs in order to create a space for CI practice and the study of interpenetrating approaches and methods. We perceive contact improvisation as a complex phenomenon which, as a communication system, becomes a tool for self-knowledge and change at the level of perception, an instrument for creation and learning about relationality. We strive to create a space for science, research and experiment, both in the area of CI and in a wider context.

We invite you to follow the festival on social media channels:
