Saturday 4/5 16:00 - 18:30
Draw a map, add a few words, mark a route. Consider this your composition and improvise. We experiment with simple dramaturgical guidelines and structures in time and space to raise awareness of the dramaturgy of improvisation. We find inspiration and borrowings in classical theatre, conceptual music, Fluxus or abstract art. A workshop for all those who want to bring some order and friction into their improvisations. Obviously, a dubious endeavour if we follow the unpredictable flow.
Duet with Jenny Beth Schaffer
