Sunday 3/5     10:00 - 12:00

Improvisation is a free and wild running river. What happens if we give structure to this unbound journey? – In this workshop we focus on the dramaturgy and composition in improvisation. With the help of a simple structure we bring some order and landmarks into the wilderness of improvisation. Introducing chapters is a simple form to organize ensemble performances and create poetic scenery and stories in a playful way. Let yourself be inspired for your next performances.
