Event Details

Deepening CI Practice 

A three and a half day long journey with, into and through Contact Improvisation.

What is this practice – to you? Why and how is it part of your life? Which layers of your being get nurtured? How could it be more rich and supportive?

We want to offer different paths for exploring these questions and deepening our practice. Spaces for somatic awareness, to access our body wisdom and to connect to ourselves; opportunities to practice and learn concrete contact improvisation skills; and we want to foster the experience, that we care and are in this together. The added layer of connection in and with nature supports our weaving a web of interconnectedness.

We’ll be a group of 30 experienced Contact Improvisers, staying on beautiful Awabakal Worimi Country at Glenrock Scout Camp in Newcastle. LeeAnne, Gina and Joerg will bring their collective wealth of experience to facilitate the main frames for dancing, researching and learning.

Lee-Anne and Gina’s passion for CI from the woman’s perspective has been the inspiration to combine their forces and share their joint dance history for the first time.

They are excited for the opportunity to offer their knowledge and discoveries in the richness of hearing each other and navigating shifting landscapes through movement.


My profession and passion is to dance and to share the dance with others. Teaching Contact Improvisation became my main field of exploration, which I began in 1995 – and it let me travel the globe before I moved to Australia and covid hit in 2020. I am grateful to have run a CI training programme and festival for over a decade. Somatic movement research, Capoeira, Release Techniques, Zenthai Shiatsu and many kinds of sports have guided my understanding of the moving body.
