Midnight Sun CI Festival Finland 5.-9.6.2024

Join us for an unforgettable CI summer festival experience in Finland from 5th to 9th of June 2024!

Contact Improvisation intensives, exstensive jams, soul nurturing additional program and a community that welcomes you warmly! Let's dance in the midnight sun magic!

Embracing the luminous Finnish summer nights, the Midnight Sun CI festival invites Contact Improvisation practitioners from Finland and around the world to a transcendent experience at a festival venue Hub Feenix, Raasepori, nestled in the heart of nature, one hour drive away from Helsinki.

With over two decades of dedicated practice, the Finnish CI-community brings forth a unique depth of skill and a warmly vibrant spirit. Our internationally acknowledged teachers are sharing their knowledge and inspiration in the daily intensives and afternoon classes. The insights gained from the classes are then integrated in the daily, extensive jams.

Midnight Sun Ci-Festival is an event that not only emphasises CI-technique and dance but also celebrates the profound sense of community. Uplifting and soul nurturing additional program from mantra circles to yoga, tea ceremonies, meditation, sauna by the lake and celebrational dining experiences, are moments designed to create lasting memories together.

The serene beauty of the surrounding nature, coupled with the enchanting phenomenon of the white nights, where the sun just briefly dips beyond the horizon before rising again, forms the backdrop for this immersive experience.

Join us on this opportunity to deepen the CI practice, build new bonds, and revel in the magic of the midsummer nights! Together, we seek to embrace the practice of Contact Improvisation and foster a sense of belonging that resonates long after the festival's end.
