To see contact Gonzo in action, is an electrifying experience. Their radical, extremely physical style that fuses contact improvisation, slapstick, parkour and martial art, is direct, almost blunt but it creates an exquisite and joyful presence that quickly transmits to audience.

contact Gonzo describe their approach as “philosophy of pain, technique of contact”. With humour and intelligence they turn the violent movemements of slapping, crushing, falling and hitting into a mesmerising and gloriously anarchic show.
