Last week session on mapping the process of improvisation was inspiring. Hope you can join us this Thursday.
The cycle for the next three thursdays will start at 14.00 – 17.00. The research will be about process in improvisation. How can we describe different phases, stages and shifting points in Improvisation. And what can we learn from and how can we use these insights.
