Contact Improvisation (CI) is a contemporary dance and improvisation form which arose in the early 1970s in the United States. It embodied many of the more revolutionary ideas that were emerging at this time: gender and racial equality, rejection of traditional gender roles, non-hierarchical communication and interaction, the breaking down of traditional physical boundaries, sharing, and being present to what each moment offers. The dance typically involves physical contact between two or more bodies, and gives particular emphasis to “trust” and “listening”. There is no leader or follower, although dancers may play fluidly with these roles. Dancers often fall in towards one another while moving, so that the point of contact is always shifting (rolling point of contact). Together they share a common center-of-gravity.
