Out of pocket – spontaneous composition

David Hernandez

For this workshop we will explore the concept of spontaneous composition:  improvisation as a performance form. Our work will be centered around the question how to compose in the moment with others and make it readable and enjoyable for the viewer. It will not be about jamming but we will address how to propose and develop ideas in an performative improvisational format. In this interest this workshop we will explore both scored and wide open improvisations with an emphasis on consequence and readability. We will work to develop the tools and imagination necessary to accomplish this.

PART 1 (before lunch)

We will work with different tools and exercises in order to create a shared base together to work from. This before lunch session will serve to set the ground from which we will work in the afternoon.

PART 2 (after lunch) Dialogue

We will come in each day and improvise together and hone our practice through dialogue. Through the course of the week we will seek to develop together through doing and discussing. At times we will film and watch videos of the improvisation to enhance the dialogue and make it more concrete.
