Improvisation workshop with David Hernandez
Diving into a daily practice centered around improvisation and the concerns connected to improvising. Exploring methods, honing skills, - connecting to the senses and how they nourish us in improvisation. Considering readability and collaboration- performing practice, practicing performing, scoring, and free wheeling. It is a daily rigorous but fun work in order to gain experience and develop the skills of being an improviser. An example of a working day could be starting with an guided open warm up session followed by some more targeted investigations of themes and tools ending with improv sessions where we can implement some of the skills and tools we explored as well as engage in feedback and dialogue based on what we have seen and experienced.
