Tomorrow, 4th of June, 13:00-17:00, you are invited to join us as performer for the ‘sharing’ session of our professional research project “(Dis)connecting the dots”.
We looked at blending music, dance and theatre without a hierarchy (one discipline supporting the other) and without deciding beforehand what type of performance it would be. Does an audience need ‘certainty’ in their perception (is it a concert, a dance piece or a theatre play?) in order to engage with it, and what is needed to stay engaged as a performer? When is the mix and the many-layerdness exciting and when is it just a soup of indistinguishable ingredients? 😀
We found things out and want to share them with you, but most of all we want to gather more experiences and reflections by playing with you tomorrow. Professional improvisation performers of any discipline are welcome! Just announce your presence by writing a comment to this post (below).

PS: If you are a theatre improv practitioner in Amsterdam, this workshop on 9 June for advanced amateurs might interest you and/or your students. It is in content connected to the above research and especially designed to let theatre improv students get in touch with other approaches to improvisation performance in order to broaden their skill. Brought to you by allimprov :). Please spread the word!
