LANGUAGE ~ fish°hooks

28 April (13:00 – 17.00), Vredenburg studio

Session III on language in improvised performance, guided by Ron Bunzl & Ralph de Rijke

In this follow-up to the sessions on 10 and 31 March we will use tropes from other, more familiar disciplines to play with words, casting them like fish-hooks to catch meanings and images rising up from the depths of our imagination and memory. Words and silence. Movement and stillness. Things experienced and remembered. Things envisioned and recalled in the here and now, in the action of the moment. Speaking truthfully, and making every word count.

RESPONSIBILITY – the ability to respond

RESPONSIBILITY – the ability to respond

After “The speaking body and the speaking bubble”, the first Carpet session investigation into speaking, we continue to explore the challenges of improvisation with words on March 31, 2016 (doors open at 14h session begins 14:15 – 17h)

Improvisation is the art of being in the now, following the flow of what emerges and making choices as to how to respond and develop what is happening as it unfolds into what is becoming. This also naturally applies to improvised text, but for many of us it is a struggle to make words free, authentic, and poetic.

So as performers we often fear the weight of words. They can shut us down and kill the magic that’s unfolding. Talking seems to be a huge responsibility. That’s exactly what we want to explore! 

Responsibility is also the ability to respond – to move with, and be moved by, the waves our words create – like stones tossed into the still waters of a pond. Attentively listening, feeling, and following the drift our words set in motion.

During this session we will use interdisciplinary improvisational structures and exercises designed to evoke, trigger and play with words.

We will play with words like fish-hooks thrown out to catch meanings and images rising up from the depths of our imagination and memory. Words and silence. Movement and stillness. Things felt, experienced and remembered. Things envisioned and things recalled in the here and now, in the action of the moment. Poetry in motion.

I THINK, THEREFORE I AM

I-think-Therefore-I-Am

In a talk about the idea of the SELF, Thich Nhat Hahn told about a cartoon he saw…I remade it to share…I had to laugh till Ia was empty with joy!
