Welcome to THE MAP!

We invite you to interact with this real time, choose-your-own-adventure archive exploring the crossroads of improvisation, Contact Improvisation, and contemporary dance. Inspired by tangible publications, including Contact Quarterly and The BOOK  (a group sourced relic of the yearly Lion’s Jaw Dance and Performance Festival held in Boston, MA) THE MAP seeks to compile first hand accounts of dance related experiences and accumulate that information onto a single, user friendly platform. The pilot iteration of THE MAP will coincide with cogravity’s 2020-2021 #jandjtaketheUSA tour and will feature written accounts, video, interviews, and photos tied to that journey.
