NIM 2014 in Finland

28.7 – 1.8, Voionmaa Institute, Finland

Welcome to the Nordic Impro Meeting 2014!

The event will take place at the beautifully situated Voionmaa Institute near Tampere, Finland. This place is surrounded by forests and a lake. We will have access to 4 dance spaces, a dining room, large grassy outdoor areas and a sauna.

The concept of NIM is founded on co-creation. We as participants set the schedule together, day by day. How would you like to contribute in creating this NIM? How do you wish to practise Contact improvisation? Maybe you will bring a musical instrument or your paints and brushes, lead a workshop, hold a space for bodywork, or something completely different…


The price of the event is 170 €, of which 70 € is paid during registration and 100 € on arrival. The registration fee 70 € is not refundable. If you have paid the whole sum during registration, but decide to cancel your participation by 31.5.2014, you will be refunded 100 €.

The festival fee includes all the offered workshops, a full access to dance spaces and common spaces, sauna on at least one evening, food (breakfast, lunch, dinner and an evening snack) and lodging in 2 or 4 person rooms.

If you want to bring children, you are very welcome, but note that there is no special arrangement or program for children. Parents are of course free to organize something by themselves. The price for children of age 3-7 is 80 €, under 3 year olds are free of charge.

You need to bring your own lining/sleeping bag and a towel. Beds and mattresses are provided by the institute. By paying 10 € you can rent lining and a towel at the event.
