We are delighted to invite you to our sessions to share with you strategies, insights, thoughts, challenges and playful moments we encountered during our collaboration.
Our creative process resulted to three performances; two in Berlin( Impro Exchange Festival, July 2016 and Impro Per Arts Festival, June 2017) and one in Amsterdam, Ot301 , June 2016).
During our research project, we worked on bringing together three different disciplines: acting, voice and dance. By using their specific attributes we envisioned to create a common ground where the three disciplines meet.
Applying the formal elements of improvisation-time, space, dynamics, relationships, composition-we were looking for creating a context from within stories are unfolding in the present time. These stories defined the content of our improvisation that is expressing itself through movement, text and vocalisation.
Our attention was drawn to different sources such as: sensory information, inner dialogue, outside environment and the collective narrative of the improvisation. Various and complex focal points of attention that were coming together and asked to be danced, sung, spoken and shared.
The key aspect of our work is that voice and language are not separate from our physical and sensorial experience..
Your presence, participation, sharing and exchanging is very welcome.
Looking forward to on Thursday 9th, 16th and 23 from 13.00 – 17.00.
At Dansstudio Vredenburgersteeg 31-35 Amsterdam
