Think Gravity Dance Tank: Celebrating & Reckoning with Contact Improvisation and Performance was an intergenerational research gathering in Boulder Colorado from March 21-26, 2022.
The project honored the 50th anniversary of contact improvisation (CI) during a pivotal moment in the context of COVID-19 and racial justice uprisings. Considering the gravity of these times, Think Gravity Dance Tank offered an embodied exchange to recognize the intersection of our bodies, ancestries, and identities as a mode of mobilizing dance futurism in the realm of CI. We asked: what is in-between and underneath the reckoning and the celebrating?
