CONTACT IMPROVISATION Festival IN CZECHIA

5th – 14th September 2024

Save the date, dear dancing friends! We will open registration in May.
The wooden dragon Létanec 2024 will have 2 intensives and will host performances, talks and lectures about and around CI. Looking forward to see family members and new faces too!

Létanec is czech contact improvisation community festival that brings together czech and foreign dancers to share, learn and enjoy contact improvisation and related practices.

We invite people to gather to dance, explore and play.

We created Létanec festival in 2019 to celebrate the growing czech contact community, to support the CI practice and to bring dancers together. We believe deeply in the social potential and life benefits of contact improvisation. The lifestyle of our society is becoming more and more disembodied and contact improvisation is a radical movement practice that gives us healthy challenge, sensitises our body-mind and reminds us of our playful potential. It develops one’s ability to communicate through touch. We explore our borders and learn to take responsibilities for our actions. CI is a developing discipline that is able to respond the complex issues of our times with developing body sensibility and making us realize the interconnectedness of all life. It is a practice of dynamic and sensitive relating to our body, to the bodies of others and to the world.

“Let me unlearn you,
until wonder is my only habit.”
