PLAYING IMPROVISATION

We will work with the idea of the game as the basis of improvisation. In the indomitable game, every new moment is a possibility, a new universe. In this opportunity, we will explore the transformation of the "error" into a new possibility. “Error” is a failed plan, and, if there is no plan, every movement is a new situation and new possibility to interact with others playfully, and experience the body as a playground full of new places and pathways.

We will explore the opportunities to engage with surprising depth however experienced you happen to be. Responding at the moment is key, as is respecting one's capacities and limitations: "starting from where you are", wherever and whenever. This attitude is essential for beginners and experienced CI practitioners, alike.
