Klara Łucznik is an improviser and dance artist interested in designing participatory experiences for a wide range of audiences. In her improvisation, she is deeply dedicated to the practice of listening with all the senses and finding connections with others, in physical contact and through the space. She explores both, ensemble and contact improvisation tools, studying the nature of human interactions. Klara is also a researcher, she obtained her PhD studying collaborations and creativity in dance through cognitive psychology lenses.
A jam is an informal gathering of dancers. There is no teacher, but space and time to develop skills and confidence. You are free to dance, rest, or sit and watch, as you wish. The jam provides an opportunity to explore and integrate techniques you have learned, and to find your own routes into dancing.
At some jams a teacher will facilitate a score to follow such as a focused (silent) jam, the Underscore (developed by Nancy Stark-Smith), or a blindfold (or eyes-closed) jam, this will normally be advertised via our regular mailout – so sign-up if you want advance notice.
