Well, it was interesting. Don't know what contact improvisation is? You're not alone. I don't know if these photos will get you any closer to an understanding of it, but it seems to be about compromise in autonomy, spirituality and efficiency in movement. It's beautiful in a way. Though I am a skeptic when it comes to anything that claims spirituality at its core, I had to admit that there was a free and natural aspect to the dancers' movements that was refreshing to see.
