As a follow-up to my previous post, here’s what’s going on from now through the end of the year that I know about in the Northeastern part of North America:
- Monday, November 3 to Friday, November 7, Montreal: Montreal’s annual CI festival offers five days of evening classes immediately preceding…
- Saturday, November 8 to Sunday, November 9, Montreal: The Montreal annual jam. Which is followed by…
- Monday, November 10 to Thursday, November 13, Montreal: Catherine Lessard workshop, “Floor Work for Improvisers – Rolls & Puzzles.”
- Friday, November 21 to Sunday, November 23, Boston: Nancy Stark Smith workshop, “Making the Mystery Visible.” For contact improvisation dancers at an intermediate or above level. Still spaces available.
- Friday, December 5 to Sunday, December 7, Washington, D.C.: Nancy Stark Smith workshop, “Dancing Outside the Lines: Principles, Patterns, and Patternless Play in Contact Improvisation.” This workshop is already sold out, but there is a waiting list.
- Sunday, December 28 to Friday, January 2, Earthdance: The Earthdance New Year’s Jam. The biggest jam of the year in this area, one that regularly attracts dancers from around the world. Registration opens at 5pm on November 3, and will sell out quickly.
Looking ahead to the New Year, January is typically a quiet month, but there are a few events coming up in February:
- Thursday, February 5, 2015, to Sunday, February 8, 2015, Buffalo: Buffalo’s Mission Improvable festival, this year titled “Presence in Motion.” Neige Christenson headlines.
- Martin Keogh, a famous and excellent CI teacher, has an East Coast tour coming up. February 7-8 in Philadelphia, February 14-16 in Washington, D.C., and February 20-23 in Boston. I don’t think advertising or registration has opened for any of these, but keep your eyes peeled — they’re likely to all sell out pretty quickly.
