Our CI Jams are growing from strength to strength, welcoming new influences, ideas and objects into the space with every passing week! We meet every Sunday at a studio in Yari Road, and dance away for 3 hours. Come join us.

What is CI? Contact improvisation begins at a curiosity of the moment when two bodies meet, when one wave crashes into another. It is an exploration in shared motion, with extra attention to gravity. Aren’t we in constant negotiation with gravity? How can we explore this phenomenon with a greater degree of awareness and explore the physical possibilities of bones, joints and skin?

What to Wear for jams: Plain, comfortable clothing without buttons, hooks, zippers, belts (think track pants/ salwars/ slacks/plain cotton shorts and t-shirts/plain kurtas). Also, please avoid wearing jewellery, especially around the neck, wrist and ankle, and also in your ears and nose (if possible). Small solid objects can be a safety hazard on the dance floor and cause injury to you and others. So, wear uncomplicated clothing for a safe CI experience!

If you play a musical instrument, please feel free to bring it to the jam. Music always helps, especially when it is live! Also, if there is an improvisation skill you would like to share with us at the jam, let us know.

Entry to the jam is by a minimum donation of INR 100, which will go towards paying rent for the studio space. Beginners are also welcome. All you need is comfortable clothing and the desire to share movement and moments. See you there!
