"I have seen CQ moving in directions that embrace, envelop, and encompass a generous span of performance endeavor, and it’s a wonder that this little project, started decades ago by a group of outliers, perseveres. But it’s no longer “the little engine that could": it can, and does! CQ widens/
broadens its tracks while maintaining integrity of purpose, means, and product."
–Brenda Dixon-Gottschild, Professor Emerita of dance, Temple Univ.
"CQ is one of the few publications that brings us writing directly from the bones and sinews of dance, illuminating the practice as we do and understand it. Please support us as we continue to accompany you on your own dance journey, and as we re-envision our future. Your support is a critical part of the conversation.”

Contact Collaborations, Inc., is CQ’s nonprofit 501(c)(3). Your donation may be tax-deductible.
Please join us in celebrating a packed year of adaptation and transition.
Since our move out of our Florence, MA office in April, our now fully remote staff has made great strides toward CQ’s transition from in-print publication to expansive online resource.
- 45 years of Back Issues are now posted here on our website.
- Archival Contact Improvisation documentaries are ready to stream, lease, or buy.
- Our online publications—CQ Unbound, CI Newsletter, Rolling Edition— are open access.
- We released our first digital article collection—"Listening Back to Black Dance Artists in CQ (2016-Jan 2020)," and our first digital book—Barbara Dilley's This Very Moment.
- Contact Editions' books (by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, Simone Forti, John Rolland, Nancy Stark Smith and David Koteen) are now being distributed by Wesleyan University Press.
This wealth of materials is a first phase of CQ's dance into new territory, and we welcome your donations—large and small—to keep our vehicle for the dancer's voice accessible to all in the years to come!
With gratitude and warm wishes from all of us at CQ,
Lisa, Lesley, Sofia, Leah and Daniel
