The perception of moods and structures of the landscape, the fauna and flora and the elemental forces, as well as the natural ability to feel the sensory impressions in the body, to translate them in an improvised way in motion, so that the breath of nature, as a dance can be felt .
This is the playful field of research in this playshop.
You are invited to a dancing adventure, the direct experience of the environment through the sensations of the body.
Instruments such as slow motion, listening and principles of contact improvisation serve as inspiration for sensual movement, dancing and unbiased existence.
Since it is about improvisation, the critical, better-knowing & judgmental mind can take a back seat
and give way to an astonishing aliveness.
Experience for yourself how it feels.


Taro Tikitiki (D)

From the yearning for spontaneous liveliness, it has attracted me to the music & dance improvisation.
Over the years I danced on many CI Jams and improv festivals & accompany them tonally.

I play on many instruments, such as Flutes, Guitar, Percussion, Frame Drum, Djembe, Digeridoo,
Jew's harp, mouthbow, monochord ... and sometimes I build myself an instrument. Vocal improvisation and the use of effects and loop device serve me as a toy.

Accompanying a CI Jam is for something other than performing a concert, as it is important to me to feel the dance field (dance for myself) and to listen, to let the "autopoetry" happen, how much is needed and when it is consistent with the sounds of the dancers to leave room or to accompany them.

The music, dance and movement improvisation is the common thread on which I playfully experience the existence, always fresh and amazed, it is a magical self-knowledge journey, which is not about to arrive somewhere, but the experience itself.

Since the year 2000, I can call myself an Integral Dance Director (CITA Munich Certificate), as a co-organizer of the Liquid Lumen Ritual, Rumble in the Jungle Dance & Music Improv Jam, the Munich ContacTango Festival and a member of the Soundmover Performance Group,I find time & space to dance and sound again & again...
