Andrew de Lotbinière HarwoodImprovisation for Performers
practising instant inventiveness
The core of this advanced workshop will focus on movement structures which will encourage performers of various backgrounds to redefine and expand their solo and duet vocabulary and allow for experimentation with small to large group dances. Through various forms of improvisation, spatial design, images, states, chance procedures, tasks and games, we will practise instant inventiveness, refine our sensing skills and develop various compositional strategies, which in turn will become the framework for in-house performances that we will view and discuss. This entire process relies on the dancers willingness to listen deeply to themselves and each other, to take risks, to call upon their confidence and to allow their skills as interpreters to come into focus. Emphasis will be placed upon collaboration and communication, personalised performing, clear intention, trust and instinct.
