“Contact Quarterly is a rare gem of a small artist-run organization, publishing vital, process-based research from the field of dance improvisation for 43 years. No publication exists that so consistently captures the tender reflections and questions of diverse movement improvisers and artists, while also tracking the lineage of this process through time. Reading CQ drops me into my body while also illuminating ‘body’ as scholarly material, as poetry, as a platform for interdisciplinary research.”
–Shaina Cantino, performer, choreographer, teacher, and CQ Advisory Board member
"Contact Quarterly is essential reading for anyone who cares about innovative developments in choreography, technique, and bodily reeducation."
–Roger Copeland, Oberlin College

CQ's Annual Appeal:
Dear friends of Contact Quarterly,
We have arrived at a pivotal moment in our organization. What began (and endures) as a labor of love has become a body of work that is essential to dance and art history. CQ’s content—created over four decades of our publication—is increasingly sought after by dance researchers, artists, and institutions throughout the world. We are currently engaged in a digitization project of the entire catalog that will offer instant access to CQ in fully searchable digital form. And we need your support to do it!
Please give generously! Your gift will help increase access to CQ’s archive while supporting the crafting of new articles for journals you can hold in your hands and additional articles online. CQ’s original content—by bold new voices in the field as well as artists that CQ has been tracking for decades—provides ongoing inspiration for us as movers and makers.
Thank you for being an active participant in our vehicle for moving ideas. As a reader-supported artist-made journal, we couldn’t do it without you.
Chris Aiken (CQ Advisory Board member), Nancy Stark Smith, Lisa Nelson, and all at CQ
P.S. Your gift by June 30 will speed us on to our annual fund-raising goal.
