Area59 in Amsterdam asked me to give a short series of morning sessions on a subject I could choose myself. So I chose my favourite subject of investigation: instant composition with performers from different disciplines.
You can join the sessions this week, Wednesday to Friday.
8, 9 & 10 April
10:00-12:00 / 6 € per session
Amsterdam, Marcusstraat 50, ‘Spazio Nudo’

“Balancing between worlds”
For these three research sessions, I would like to look at the different ‘worlds’ we inhabit as improvisers on stage, depending on our performance backgrounds, and how we switch and balance between them during performance. Continue reading
On 13 April 2015, I am invited to perform as vocalist in the Monday Match performance curated by Michael Schumacher and Sandra Pujols.
Special about this evening will be that the only musicians present are vocalists, therefore it will be pure a-capella instant composition in combination with the dancers. No instruments on stage this time, only BODIES.
Come and see it!
