DJ Jam

next dj jam in helsinki on sat 16.3 at 20 – 23.

dj jam combines music played by a dj, gentle visuals and a contact improvisation jam.

a sensitive dj watches the crowd as closely as an improvising musician watches an improvising dancer. contact improvisation was born in the 70’s to experience dance in a new way and CI jams were born to share this experience. dj jam is one invitation for a jam in 2024.

in addition to visuals, we’re also enjoying a fragrance. we’ll keep it light enough. it’s 100 % organic. as part of the visuals we’re using fog in this jam.

you can come and go as you want, but we recommend arriving for the shared tuning-in and staying for the ending circle as that will deepen the experience of the jam and make sure everyone shares the same information regarding safety.

score for the session:

20 – 20.15 arrival

20.15 – 20.45 shared and facilitated tuning-in. here we will also go through the rules regarding safety

20.45 – 22.45 jam

22.45 – 23 cooling down and ending circle

you don’t need to have any experience about contact improvisation in order to join the jam.

and this might be a perfect way to start your nite out, too.
