Time: 13:30 doors open – build up / warm up – 14:00-17:00 sesssion
Starting off the season this year is a closer look at the interlocking Ketjak rhythms as a binding element for instant composition pieces.
We are interested to research two aspects more:
1. the way the ketjak rhythms form an undercurrent and fertile ground for other things to happen on top of and through it (solo’s, duet’s…). How does the group react/relate when that is happening? What sort of overall dramaturgy does this create for a longer piece?
2. the way the principle of ‘interlocking’ can be used for other improvisation material. To explain: the ketjak is in fact one simple rhythm that interlocks with up to eight ‘copies’ of itself, shifted in time. How could this be translated to the on-the-spot development of choreography or theatre? E.g.: replicated dance phrases that interlock, pieces of monologue that are copied/repeated/shifted.
