In the first days of February, we invite you to a Winter Jam!
Winter is conducive to reflection, contemplation and the search for inner warmth. In this aura, we invite you to three days (and one more evening) of dance and somatic practices at the Mazovian Institute of Culture (MIK). There will be space to meet, to experience yourself, to experience the group.
The organisation of big jams is one of the classic practices in the CI tradition, it is a meeting of the CI community over several days without a (very) structured plan, with the intention to share practices, dance and exchange experiences in equal relationships. The community: dancers, guests and facilitators share a space for dance with each other throughout the day, with time to experiment with form and group aspects of practice. The programme below is indicative, we want to invite you to a variety of practices, and we look forward to your suggestions.


Our fantastic support team among others includes: Tomasz Domański, Eva Klimackova, Paweł Kubiak, Klara Łucznik, Ksenia Opria, Filip Wencki i Łukasz Wójcicki

And evening nights will be filled by sounds by: Katarzyna Tekielska, Jakub Dykiert, Phao Sanato i Martin Daniel Zorzano.


Fruits, snacks and tea will be provided as part of the winter jam.

Cost: 40 EURO for the whole event.
