Sorry, due to big back problems I can not offer to facilitate the planned Carpet Session on ‘Prohibition’ today.
Hereby I have to cancel the Session of 6th of April.
With regrets, Esmeralda
After Support and Challenge by Maria and James we continue our research with Prohibition.
To break your own patters or habit in an improvisation piece, we gave each others tasks or a prohibit. See where your Challenge is?
This Thursday from 13.00 – 17.00 at Dansstudio, Vredenburgersteeg 31 at Amsterdam. If you not a member: 5 euro.
See you 6th of April, Esmeralda
The last three Carpet Sessions were organised by Maria, Zwaan and Esmeralda. With the idea to share our different disciplines: dance, voice and acting.
Last week session the focus was on voice by Zwaan. This time the focus will be on body work and text by Maria and Esmeralda. Esmeralda will share her experience as an actress by using the context abstract or concrete. By being direct and using realistic meaning or placing words in space and being poetic.
How we can influence each other disciplines by using words. Playing with text and add to voice/ music and movement.
We hope to see you this Thursday at Dansstudio, Vredenburgersteeg 31 Amsterdam. Time: 13.00 – 17.00 For no member 5 euro fee for renting studio.
See you soon, Esmeralda and Maria.
Last Carpet Session we worked with three disciplines Maria (dance), Angela and Jesica (voice) and Esmeralda (acting). We choose a theme ‘Lines’ and worked from our own discipline to make a solo of 3/5 min. Later we explored how we could enter from your one discipline into a solo piece of an other discipline.
Questions that popped-up:
Next Thursday we will continue the research of working with different disciplines.
All disciplines are welcome for our session to share and explore the beginnings of piece, the shifts and the work in process of the different approach of each other’s art tools.
See you at dance studio Vredenbrugersteeg 31, Amsterdam, thursday 13.00 – 17.00

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.
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

Connecting the Dots:
Zwaan, Maria and Esmeralda worked together to explore their disciplines and share them to make an Impro Piece of 45 min.
We performed in Berlin and will perform in June again. Using our disciplines and connecting them, reading and learning form each other work style. That will be the main theme of our sessions.
More information will be posted.
