2nd session “Postponing the end” for dancers/musicians



Dear dancers/musicians

There are two Carpet sessions coming up for those who are interested in practicing Instantly Composed Performances. In the first sesson (Oct 2) we are focussing the research around movement/dance. In the second session (Oct 9) we want to continue the research and include live musicians to play/perform with us. Please join and spread the word!

What happens when we postpone “the ending” within an improvised composition?
What happens in that awkward spacious moment when we know the ending is near but we don’t allow it to be… nevertheless we allow something new to develop out of it…. How does the scene continue? Does the scene transform or break into a new chapter? How to deal with the moment of “how are we ever going to resolve into movement again?” How to deal with moments of timeless stillness and silence awaiting the new chapter? How does the audience observe this transition moment? Does it heighten or lower the tension on stage?

In this session we make sure to make a lot of “improvised pieces” together and becoming more aware of how “endings” live within a performed composition. We won’t spend a long time “preparing” to get into a flow. We are looking forward to welcome dancers, physical performers and musicians who are familiar and comfortable in practicing and researching instant composition and who are able to bring in their own questions, suggestions and discoveries.

2 October 2014, 13:00 – 17:00 (dancers/movers/performers only)
9 October 2014, 13:00 – 17:00 (movers +++ musicians)

We ask 5€ to cover the rent of the studio.

Interested in joining? Let me know you’re attending this session!!!
