Three day performance at Circuits & Currents.
An improvised happening repeating for three days but different each one. A workshop based on the idea and structure of the happening.
The bodies carry speech. The bodies carry movement. They carry music. We are the bodies. In this context we will read, dance and play.
This happening takes place in continuous sets of improvisations. Like a puppet composed of smaller parts to form a greater whole, every small part is subjected to a single thread , but each thread ends up at the hand of the same puppeteer. The intention -if there ever was one- is to let ourselves freely associate with thoughts and instincts, to be drifted away to a symphony through a game of extension contradictions .
A workshop will take place on the 8th of April at 17:00 until 20:00. The purpose of this workshop is to familiarize the participants with the idea of improvisation. We will improvise on practices like text collaging and creation, choreography and movement, but also on the use of visual and sound media. With the interaction of the mentioned fields we will create a common ground. The participants will be asked to contribute on the show of the same day at 21:00. whoever is interested should bring the following:
2-3 favourite poem collections/books (with favourite parts marked out), Favourite items or every day use ones, 2-3 favourite soundscapes or music tracks and 2 scenes from favourite movies.
for participation in the workshop, please send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
