2012 North Sea CI Camp & Intensive & Global Underscore
St Peter Ording / Germany
June 21-24, 2012


This is an invitation to come and play with us at the beach!
We are gathering people who love CI, community and the ocean!
Let’s enjoy dancing the summer together!
There will be an outdoor CI Intensive The Trio of Earth, you & Me with Elske Seidel, plenty of jamming (indoor & outdoors, including the Global Underscore) and lot’s of time to do nothing.
Space where dance and magic can meet!
Near the ocean hearing the waves, we can dive into nature fully, communicating through our skin we meet the place with all of our body. We can be in contact with each other and our surroundings, dancing its landscapes as we touch. Discovering the invitations of the place and playing with all its possibilities.
Honoring nature as our teacher!
Learning from its elements, opening into the magic of experience, the power of letting go, softening, refining our quality of movement and taking it to another level.
Inside, listening, we integrate what we discovered in nature. Using the studio and its focus to unravel the fascinating technical aspects of CI. Enjoying the simplicity and clarity of an indoor space to create our dances and understand movement.
At this gathering we are interested in how our dance unfolds as we share time and dance in nature, in contact with each other and the elements: water, wind, sand and sun.
We are looking very much forward to dancing with you at the beach!
Kids and friends are welcome! Elske Seidel und Daphne Leinweber

We will be spending lot’s of time at the incredible spacious and beautifully white beach of St. Peter Ording (Nordstrand). We will live and dance, play and eat, rest and talk here.

We will dance with and in nature and we will dance inside the studio. There will be a CI Outdoor Intensive The Trio of Earth, You and Me with Elske Seidel, space for labbing (e.g. about jumping-falling), indoor and outdoor jamming and lots of time to do nothing.
We will have sharing groups to be in contact beyond the dance and support the idea of merging life and dance together.
In 2012 Contact Improvisation turns 40! Part of the celebration is the global underscore which is happening on June 23rd at the same time in many different parts of the world. The global underscore was developed by Nancy Stark Smith and her students. It is a structure which is naturally happening while jamming and by using it consciously (and also unconsciously), it is opening a space where dance and magic can meet.

We will stay at Campingplatz Biehl (www.campingplatz-biehl.de, 04863-96010) which is located right at the most beautiful beach (Nordstrand). We highly recommend making your reservation ahead of time! The Camp Site is easily booked out during summer.
There are many other Camp Sites and accommodation possibilities available if needed.

You will be responsible for your own food. We will support the organization of cooking groups for the evening to share meals together. The Camp Site has a kitchen we are welcome to use and we will provide pots & pans. Don’t forget your own cup & plate and everything you need to take care of your food and be comfortable.

For our dancing and playing adventures it is fun to bring nose clips and ear plugs. Moreover shade & wind structures might be useful. Bring sunscreen lotion and long sleeve shirts. Bring a soft scarf for the Outdoor Intensive.

Costs: until 6/6: € 80-120 sliding-scale (pay as you can), later € 100-140
reduction possible for leading a morning practice (e.g. Yoga, Tai Chi, Qi Gong …)

Das Camp wird wesentlich am schönen weißen Sandstrand von St.-Peter-Ording stattfinden. Dort werden wir unser Lager aufschlagen: Zeit und Raum haben zum Contact tanzen, baden, Volleyball spielen, essen, im Sand liegen, am contact dance forschen in Sand und Wasser.
Gemeinsam sein.
Zentraler Treffpunkt wird am oberen Nordstrand sein.
Outdoor, d.h. unser Tanz wird genährt durch den unmittelbaren Kontakt mit den Elementen. Im Sand, im Spiel mit den Wellen entsteht eine ungewohnte Tanzqualität und anderes wird möglich. Da sind dann wundervolle Perspektiven zu genießen wie z.B. „Leuchtturm kopfüber“. So lassen wir neue Ausblicke und Einblicke auftauchen.

Es wird Zeit zum ausprobieren und labben geben (z.B. zum Thema: „jumping-falling“).
Um über den Tanz hinaus in gutem Kontakt zu sein, gibt’s die Möglichkeit zum täglichen Austausch im Gespräch in Kleingruppen (Sharing-Gruppen).
In diesem Jahr wird Contact Improvisation 40 Jahre alt! Am Samstag den 23. Juni 2012 findet von 15:30-19:30 Uhr der Globale Underscore statt und wird an vielen, vielen Orten rund um die Erde zeitlich parallel getanzt. Der Underscore ist eine ‚unter einer Jam liegende’ natürliche Struktur, die von Nancy Stark Smith zusammen mit ihren Schülern entwickelt wurde und eine Jam in wunderbarer Weise unterstützt. Wir wollen CI ehren und uns an dieser Feier beteiligen. Alle weiteren Details vor Ort.
Wir werden möglichst auf dem Campingplatz Biehl (www.campingplatz-biehl.de, 04863-96010) zelten, der direkt am Nordstrand liegt. Um eine Reservierung (dringend empfehlenswert, da der Platz im Sommer leicht ausgebucht ist!) muss sich jede/r individuell kümmern.
Alternativ gibt’s in St. Peter diverse andere Campingplätze Und Unterbringungsmöglichkeiten.

Bzgl. Essen ist grundsätzlich Selbstverpflegung angesagt. Wir unterstützen die Organisation von Kochgruppen für ein gemeinsames warmes Essen am Abend (wir können die Küche des Campingplatzes nutzen und bringen große Töpfe etc mit). Denk an eigenen Teller, Becher und alles was Du brauchst, um Dich wohlzufühlen und zu versorgen.

Denk neben Ohrstöpseln und Nasenklemmen, für das Bewegen im Wasser, auch an ausreichenden Sonnen- und Windschutz wie Sonnenschirm, Strandmuschel u.ä.

Kosten: € 80-120 (bis 6.6.) sliding-scale (nach Selbsteinschätzung), danach € 100-140
Reduktion bei Übernahme der Morgeneinstimmung möglich.
