“Tell the brain to tell the mind to shut up – body obey me”
I guide performers through physical exercises that highlight how the eyes and ears effect movement choices. I extend the workshop towards improvisation sessions setting a fictional front in the studio space and then declare this as a platform to choose pause, flow or exit. All three of these actions are studied separately through out the workshop. These three choices provide the frame for a composition to take place while misunderstanding, coincidence, messiness, emotions, intuition, impulse and inspiration feed the content. The improvisation sessions are given a delegated time frame with an option for the workshop group to shift, drop or lift the space at will. That responsibility places each individual in a position to be fully awake or they will recognisably loose the thread of the creative activity in play. Individual development and understanding of presence is critical in this workshop.
I have been been investigating theater, dance and music with live performance for 35 years. I take a microscopic view on the role improvisation plays in the creation process. I have worked with musicians, dancers, actors and text artists from various backgrounds who share my passion for interdisciplinary real time performances. My study and practice of the body is the glue for how I combine all aspects of the performance arts. I accept artists from all performance art backgrounds without prejudice concerning technical skills or esthetic boundaries.
