Paris, ILE DE FRANCE , France

Dear rolling friends from France and beyond,

Here is an invitation for the RiCI, Paris’ International Contact Improv Festival!!

As we have done in past years, we offer you to engage with the dance through three different roles: as a student in the classes; a co-researcher in the labs; and as a dancer in the jams. We will keep inquiring as to how these three roles speak to and nourish each other, and how they differ from each other, as well as to what kinds of space or support each one offers.

This year, the entire event will be held at the beautiful Carreau du Temple, in the 3rd arrondissement, in the heart of Paris!

Chris Aiken (US) and Malcolm Manning (UK/FIN) will be our two guest teachers for the intensives. Four other teachers will give us the pleasure of introducing us to the labs, whose theme this year will be emergence dynamics. Last but not least, one jam will be opened by Michèle Tarento, who will come share and help us experience her work with bio-tensegrity.

We can’t wait to see you dance, burst your joys, and roll in the air in this beautiful space!!!… :)

The L’œil et la main team,
Catherine, Celine, Matthieu

Dates: 17th – 23rd of July

Housing: We unfortunately cant’ host you in the venue, but we invite parisian participants to share their houses over the festival. It worked well last year, so we believe it would do so again !
