When improvising, each performer is working simultaneously on different levels of perception; listening, watching, sensing, acting, reacting to one's self and one’s partners. The art of real time composition resides in the ability to remain open to the wealth of internal and external impulses, and receive, process, and propose material in an uninterrupted flow of feedback. How to avoid overload, how to be actively attentive, how to do nothing and still act? We address these questions through a series of improvisational games and simple scores that deal with internal/external focus, shifting states, simultaneous time and the relationship of the actor and the witness, where the most important is to PLAY, SERIOUS FUN!
