Where: Produktionszentrum für Tanz + Performance e.V., Tunnelstraße 16, 70469 Stuttgart, Germany
When: Saturday 23.02.2019, 11:00 – 17:00
Andrew uses a skills approach to improvisation. In this workshop, there is a daily practice of skills development, performance opportunities and feedback.
When combined, these form a reflective practice that Andrew believes is essential in the development of improvisational performance. It is also an opportunity to feel the impact that consistent practice has on improvisational performance.
We will explore sources of content such as, breath, movement, voice and imagination, which will be fuelled by the spirit of communication and shared pleasure.
Participants are encouraged to become their own editor in performance, using the skills of shifting their point of attention, developing texture and maintaining clarity.
Participants should also come expecting to enjoy themselves.
