Research and creation into 'getting lost' in improvisation.

Collective Endeavours

We will explore ideas around ‘losing oneself’ in improvisation while keeping track of the structural elements of the specific improvisation. This brings together two big ideas that we have gravitated towards in improvisation: 1) the freedom to push oneself and go through transcendent states in performance and 2) the process of being connected (and supported) by the group and by the structure of the improvisation. As a performance practice we want the audience to see the clarity of the structure but also to go through the journey with the performers.

Company Class | Thursday 12 | 10:00- 11:30

A class to explore approaches to improvising to live music and other dancers. The class will include a somatic warm up, deep listening and strategies for exploring the relationship between sound and movement as an individual and as part of a group.
