A music & dance improv JAM

A ritual of self-awareness - perception + movement & sound improvisation

To get started with the jam, there is a warm-up ,of about 30 minutes to arrive, to feel, to listen and to follow the movement and creative impulses ...
With a soundsignal the jam stars , with a timeframe (of about 2h) in which the room is open, to make music, to dance, to wonder or to do nothing, etc. & with the invitation to get along without any verbal conversation during this time.
Everyone is jointly responsible, or co-designer / in this common space of experience.
In the end there is the possibility to exchange in circles about the experienced.
Brings instruments, curiosity and dancing pleasure.


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...
