About master-class:

Level: all levels.
In this workshop we will have a chance to study improvisation as performance art, practising our ability to create movement from our own physical experience and at the same time follow the rules of a score/structured improvisation. In solo, partner and ensemble work fundamental elements of composition and performance will be explored: awareness for time and space, dynamics and rhythm, form and content. Building the skills of the imagination, we foster the ability to respond creatively and intuitively to a moment to moment changing reality and become ready to perform instant composition.
