Ensemble Improvisation for Performance

Weekly sessions will provide structure and practice in improvisation, and will develop perceptual skills crucial to ensemble performance.

Through experimentation, dialogue and guided exercises, dancers will investigate the impact of actively seeing and hearing while moving.

Classes will emphasize:

  • Noticing the impact of “feeling” states in performance.
  • Recognizing ones personal, choreographic “ethic”.
  • The use of choice in creating a collaborative Instant Composition.

Karen Hubbard has made available some images taken Friday night at the Kava Lounge. Pictured is musician turned dancer Morgan Sully and I, with Robert Montoya, lurking in the corner there behind his PC.

As promised, here are excerpts from our rehearsal last Wed. All footage was shot by the amazing videographer, Larry Asakawa (Larry, do you have a website?)

Coming soon… footage from the TNT performance the following day.

Today I’m in rehearsal for the final leg of the Spring Reverb concert where I’ll be performing as part of the Ernesto Neto exhibit of his textile installation piece:

"Mother body emotional densities / for alive temple time baby son"

 

Check back later for video clips from rehearsal. Also, we’re lucky to have videographer Larry Asakawa on hand to document the event, so those who can’t make the event can expect to see a record of it posted here.
