      To All Seattle Creatives,

       

      This year is the 36th anniversary celebration of the creation of Contact Improvisation and there is a national celebration happening in Pennsylvania, near where we also have our annual Wild Meadows Farm Improvisation Retreat.

       

      This year we will be hosting our event in tandem with CI36 as a satellite event. So, if CI36 is too expensive (around $450+ $300 food/lodging) but you want to join the festivities, consider coming to Wild Meadows and either participating in our event June 8th -12th and/or stay at the farm for the bigger CI36 event (June 12th-18th) and save on food/lodging (we will provide transport to CI36).

       

      See below for details on our event, and/or contact me for more information on staying at the farm at Cyrus@... or by phone at 206-935-0459.
