Improvisation class "The time", Nikolai Schetnev
|About masterclass: ||Whatever we do the time was, is, will be there, it goes, stops, slows down and speeds up. Maybe it doesn’t really exist, and people just made up some kind of frames to make the life easier?
Our main focus will be on the sensation of time and we will experiment with it in different variants, in a game and improvisation, beginning to work in solo and then in group. Initiative is welcome. The class is a research laboratory.
For middle level or for those who want and think they are ready.
