Ensemble Improvisation Workshop

with Seke Chimutengwende

Start date: September 22, 2018

End date: September 23, 2018

Time: 11am - 6pm daily

Tickets: £60 robdothopper@aol.co.uk (£30 deposit to secure place)

This workshop is for anybody interested in improvising with others using movement and text.

We will work alone, in pairs and as a group, practicing moving and using our voices together.

We will explore different ways of generating material and relating that material to others, developing skills of listening, noticing and responding in performance.

Seke brings all his experience and humour as performer into this workshop. His teaching facilitates ease and confidence in performing and a joyful approach to improvising together.
