Dr. Daniel J. HayesDr. Daniel J. Hayes: curator & organizer. I play Eco-Anarchist, medical doctor, public health scientist, kinkster and Contact Improviser. I divide my time between a little beach hut on the small island of Formentera and Can Masdeu, an intentional living community in a national park on the outskirts of Barcelona. I’ve been playing, dancing, meditating and conversing Contact for over a decade and have actively shared my curiosity and knowledge for the past four years.

I’m founder of the Touch&Play Project and organizer of the 1st Spanish Contact Teachers and Organizers Meeting (EMOCIE) in 2010. Currently, I’m preparing this years’ ECITE in Ibiza and I’m collaborating in the Round Robin Project. My current interest is to hack open ‘classical’ CI, to take the form out of dance and bring it into play, meditation, communication, therapy, education, sexuality and more through rigorous artistic and academic research.
