Performer, Maker, Self – Improvisation for Performance Workshop
September 19, 2015 @ 10:00 am - September 20, 2015 @ 5:00 pm UTC+060EURO
Improvisation for Performance Technique
(open to movers (professional or students) interested in improvisation as a performance practice – they could be actors or dancers)
This workshop touches on the basic modalities of improvisation—exploring space, time, solos and pairings, moving from impulse vs. moving from memory or imagination.
We will approach these techniques with new eyes and break down step by step the ways we create and shape the space. This is a technique in letting our composition mind move in parallel to our improvisation mind.
This workshop is catered towards dancers new to improvisation or seasoned improvisers, who would like to check in and learn a different style of improvisation.
We will discuss space and how to compose it. Using the different ways we can see and perceive, we will do group scores in composing the space. We will borrowing techniques from Simone Forti.
First session we will focus on creating ensemble scores into duets using exercises based on Emergent Improvisation. Second session we will explore different ways of approaching duets using techniques proposed by Meg Stuart. We will ask the question of what is emergent, how to move seamlessly between the roles of leader, responder of framer. We will spend a lot of time on the role of the framer, delving deeper into the meaning of shaping and composing the space and the events during improvisation.
Both sessions we will work in performing solos and particularly on performing presence and Deborah Hay’s approach of Ready Fire Aim. Most importantly will finish with Performing Solo Improvisation without a score.
If you are interested in this work, highly recommend you come for the full day or just the first session as it would be confusing to join at the end.
