About Touch&Play Massachusetts
Held as grateful guests at Earthdance in Plainfield, MA on the unceded territory of the Nipmuc
Founded in 2010, the first Touch&Play event happened in Germany from an exploration of the chemistry and edges of Contact Improv. At its core is exploring the "relational body" with values centering on authenticity, inclusion, play, embodied consent and tribe. The first Touch&Play in the US happened in 2016 and has since been an annual event held at Earthdance. We seek with curiosity, play and vulnerability how to individually and collectively dismantle the systems of oppression that live in our bodies, minds and spirits... weaving us into deeper connection with ourselves, each other and nature. Dance, kink, BDSM, somatics, BMC, authentic relating, NVC are some of our influences as we awaken more vibrantly our emotional, somatic and erotic intelligence.
