Andrew de Lotbinière HarwoodImprovisation for performers
These classes focus on improvisation as a performance art. To me the unique value of improvisation lies in its live spontaneity, its potential to discover something spectacularly dynamic, physical and ''real'' in the instant, that you would never have thought of in a hundred hours of choreographic rehearsal. Improvisation requires a great deal of concentration, presence of mind and body, and abandonment of expectations and ego, all while being watched. It requires accepting that you cannot control everything. Perfection is not the accomplishment of a pre-determined goal, but rather a moment-by-moment process of perception, response and collaboration. The classes will emphasize acute physical presence, intimate yet versatile movement, fullness of breath, personalized performing, open and sharp intention, and, most of all, trust.
