Surrender to your inner sight.
We’re hosting Gabriel Diamond from California, USA for an unforgettable evening of Blindfolded Contact Dance from 6-9pm on Saturday 6 April in Eastville, Bristol.

Blindfolded Contact Dance is a slow and gentle experience for both beginners and experienced dancers alike. The constraint of the blindfold invites dancer to explore other senses to find connection, expression, pleasure, and safety. These workshops take participants on a journey of somatic self-discovery and non-verbal consent via solo and group exercises before culminating in a freeform blindfolded jam. We will open with a short circle addressing boundaries and safety.

Part of the core ethos of BFC is “the whole room is your partner”. That means setting aside your judgments, preferences, and biases and dancing with everyone in the space—including by yourself. We have a high expectation of personal responsibility and respect regarding consent and boundaries. If you have a blindfold (or something that can be used as one), please bring it. Otherwise we will have some available.
