DJ Jam

dj jam combines music played by a dj 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 2021.

the visuality of the jam will change slightly each time. dj samee twiddles the knobs.

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.

you can get your ticket directly from holvi by jumping here.

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

COVID-19 safety:

the space is ventilated regularly. there’s also an air purifier in the space which lessens the risk of infection according to peer-reviewed research. if you come to the jam in the middle, please first come and say hi to the dj and ask if there’s anything particular that you should know about the practicalities we might have discussed in the beginning.

note:

we’ll take some photos and possibly shoot some video at the jam. if you’d rather not be seen in these, come and tell it to the dj and we’ll sort it out.

dj jam is committed to the principles of safer space. this means respect for all genders, sexualities, backgrounds, bodies and abilities. racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic or other oppressive behavior is not allowed.

dj is in charge of safety in the space and they are never too busy to react so do feel free to contact them at any point if you have any concerns.
