Darrell Duane

Darrell organizes Camp Contact, the camp that is at Burning Man and at Burning Man Regional events on the East Coast dedicated to Contact Improvisation and other Movement based forms. "For me, Contact Improvisation represents the more basic, more primal side of what dance is. It is postmodern, it is a deconstruction of dance which lays bare the underpinnings of dance that many other dance forms hide. It also serves as a tool to explore the murky depths of our humanity: few forms are so deep, rich, and potent that after a dance you have to journal for half an hour because of what was discovered or got stirred up”.
