What is your first impulse? Can you trust it? What happens when the judge falls asleep? Can sight be a handicap? Can you know too much? This is a workshop about Dancing and Speaking and Improvisation and Composition. In this workshop we will use several improvisation strategies to open a free flow of immediate, spontaneous writing, speaking and dancing. We will employ different approaches of partnering, releasing, scores, texting, authentic movement and automatic writing to generate material. We will use the resultant dance and text to construct impromptu group pieces as well as a means toward broadening self-expression in solo work.
