MOVEMENT IMPROVISATION MEETS NON-MUSIC
at LATHOS KINISI
Our workshops are an attempt to find different ways for the public to interact with 'other' music: Whoever is going to listen to an improvised music concert cannot know exactly what to expect; the composition is created in the space within the context of the moment. Within these circumstances, being audience is also an improvised activity of listening. To sit, to contemplate, to applause at the end, could not sincerely express what has been experienced during the listening.
This four day workshop in Athens will be held from 29th to 31st of October with the final sharing performance of the participants on 1st of November
The workshop begins with a two hour class, sensing and understanding the body using different references of somatic research like Body Mind Centering, Klein technique, Authentic Movement, Buttoh and improvisational and compositional tools.
The participant will explore a form of performance as something that involve both action and perception on an individual level and also belonging to a group. Also it aims to explore performance as something involving both action and reception.
The workshops are leaded by artists who have a strong connection with the world of experimental music.
