Touch&Play History

The Touch&Play Project started in 2010 as a platform to challenge the practice of Contact Improvisation (CI) as it existed at that time. Through a first festival in Berlin teachers of CI and a range of other body-based practices were invited to explore the ‘Chemistry in Contact’  by inviting in participants’ emotions, sexuality, aggression, politics and everything else often kept out of our dances.

 The event was a success and the material reverberated around the European and North-American contact communities raising discussions on the boundaries of our practice and the perceived (un)safety of our attempts to exclude our chemistry from our dances.

The first Touch&Play project to occur in the US was facilitated July 2016 at Earthdance on the theme of communication. It was a great success. The festival received a large amount of positive feedback.

 This is Touch&Play’s first appearance in Canada and we are honored to be a part of this growing movement.

 Contact Improvisation continues to evolve. We invite you to be active in its evolution by exploring the ways in which our verbal and non-verbal communication enhances our connections, allowing us to dance more clearly and honestly.


Touch&Play Montreal is taking place on the gorgeous land of Kio-o retreat center.

The center is located in the heart of a 125-acre estate in the beautiful mountains of the Laurentians, about 100 km from Montréal, in Ste-Lucie-des-Laurentides.
