The Contact Dance International Film Festival returns for its third season, June 28 to July 2, 2017. This festival, produced by REAson d’etre dance productions, celebrates films featuring momentum-based dance created by some of the top creators and dancers in the field of Contact Dance Improvisation. Five different screening programs will be presented alongside dance workshops, jams and parties! 

The festival is a unique opportunity for both film and dance lovers to experience the joy, chaos and intimacy of human connection through physical movement. From the iconic Honest Ed’s in Toronto to Helsinki’s Market Square to the New York Subway, dancers fly and bodies collide with force, grace and tenderness. 

This year, the Festival is thrilled to bring Mayumu Minakawa and Tom Weksler to Toronto. Tom will be teaching his Movement Archery workshop. Togther, Mayumu Minakawa and Tom Weksler will be performing and teaching a contact improvisation workshop, as well as presenting their film work. 

There are also inclusive workshops and jams lead by an all-abilities team of dance teachers that are designed to be welcoming to people of all training levels and abilities, those new to the form and dancers using wheelchairs.
