This event is for experienced practitioners, as there will be no instruction and the focus is on jamming.

With open hearts we invite you to the Winter Warmer Jam, nestled in the Devonshire hills, we will cohabit and create a weekend centered around the practice of contact improvisation jamming. We will nest together and nourish ourselves in the darker days of winter, with a loving dance floor, nourishing food, and sauna extravaganza. We wish to embody and live the lessons of contact improvisation on and off of the dance floor, with collective care for one another and dedication to the practice.

6:30 pm Friday 1st December
Sunday 4:30 pm Sunday 3rd December
Ashburton, Dartmoor, Devon

Tickets Link

We will all share a large barn in the hills near Ashburton, there are different sleeping options, but we will certainly be snuggling up and sharing dream space. There are four spacious double bedrooms with ensuites or the option to roll out your mat next to new and old friends in the studio itself or the mezzanine balcony. You are also welcome to rock up in your bed-on-wheels, there is ample parking space.

We invite everyone to partake in the preparation of one (or more) meal as a continuation of the practice.

This will not be an instructive space, we will be held by a structure and agreement to collective focus during jams. Experience in the practice of contact improvisation is required. If you are unsure what this means, do contact us and we can discuss.
