Open Session “(Dis)connecting the dots” 4 June 2015

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”.

connecting_dots2_pusteblumen_grey_light3We 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).

 

If you come, bring 5,- euro towards the costs of keeping the Carpet Studio rented all year round. Thanks! What are the Carpet Sessions? / Where is the studio?  (click here)

  1. Hi Thomas,

    Ik zal er morgen uiteindelijk niet zijn. Ik heb een hamstring gescheurd en moet zeer rustig aandoen. Een andere keer zeker wel, wil graag meedoen, dus hou me op de hoogte.

    Groet en veel plezier, Job Op 3 jun. 2015, om 13:17 heeft Interdisciplinary Instant Composition het volgende geschreven:
