DIALOGE – Contact Impro Jam series with live music


:: 29th of  November  – 1st of  December 2024
:: 24th -26th of January 2025 with Donatella Abate
:: 7th -9th of March  2025 with Nils Alf


– in Friedland near Göttingen, for  average 30 people
– with Peter Krug (contrabass and hang) and  Katja-Bahini (artistic direction and Contact Improvisation) and our guests …



Within the DIALOGE  series we, Katja-Bahini and Peter Krug open a space for exploring the interaction between  music, sound and physical motion /dance. We chose the weekend format as we wish to generously spend time together as a group.

– in stillness, in motion and contact, sounding and making music, as well as talking about what connects and moves us. Every Jam will include different musical focuses and moods – sometimes calm, melodical, rhythmical or experiential and will start with a guided warmup offered by me, Katja-Bahini or Barbara Pfundt.  If needed we offer a bilingual warmup with english translation.

 The event is designed for 25-30 people.
Previous experience in Contact Improvisation is wished as we will offer no classes but guided Contact Impro Jam formats for free improvisation.

Near  Göttingen with a good train connection. All details you receive after      registration.
