DJ Hayes @ Touch&Play 2013

Daniel Hayes

I’m a Medical Doctor, public health scientist, eco-anarchist and practical idealist. I’ve been playing, dancing, meditating and conversing CI for over a decade and have actively sharing my curiosity and knowledge, curiosity and doubts for the past six years.. I’m the founder of the Touch&Play Project, which explores the edges of Contact Improvisation by inviting our (al)chemical bodies into the dance. Through artistic and academic research I hope to highlight the potential of CI as a tool to create authentic connections with oneself and the other by bringing it into play, communication, BDSM, therapy, education, sexuality, somatic mindfulness and more.
