Trial Class 11th of April
Course Begins April 18 and ends June 20, 2018

How do we embody the information we take in through our senses?
How do we "make sense" of our world? What happens when you put life questions/philosophy into physical practice?
Can you make a game about territorialism? Insecurity? Occupying the in-between?
What happens when you allow yourself to be moved by something/someone?

The practice of Improvisation is about increased awareness using a framework of movement; bringing the mind and body together. It changed my life and it can change yours too.
* Rediscover your innate sense of play/having fun.

* It's challenging: structures/sometimes rules are given requiring quick thinking or ditching the intellect in favor of more instinctual/spontaneous movement.

* Boosted problem-solving skills

* Calms down the overactive thinking parts of the brain.

* Discover new ways to move, how your body works & what it needs to function optimally/with more pleasure & grace.

* Helps physical & mental fitness. Resist deterioration.

* Learn to look from a different perspective, open up to new possibilities & ways of being.

All levels welcome in this course to explore this amazing discipline which is practiced by so many "creatives". Come and see why! This course focuses primarily on movement, but is ultimately multi-disciplinary.

Structure: A thorough warm-up followed by interactive games/structures designed to stimulate physical and mental skill development. Usually an open score or "harvesting" session towards the end. For those wishing to use the acquired skills to enhance their professional development or explore performance possibilities there is a half hour extension dedicated only to performance skills/composition/dance theater making processes.
