Improvisation Workshop: Dance and Music

This workshop is intended for intermediate to advanced dancers and musicians who are interested in exploring free improvisation within and between their respective artistic disciplines. Participants will practice observing and responding to each other, communicating through movement and sound, and reflecting on their work as a group.

This workshop takes places as part of the Living Things Festival with facilitators Neil Cadger, Andrew Stauffer, and Nicholas Denton Protsack, who will be performing at a live improvised event, Looks Like Sounds.

Musicians should bring their instruments and necessary gear (cables, amps). An upright piano is available. Dancers should bring clothes to dance in.

IMPORTANT: After registering, please send an email to Andrew Stauffer ([email protected]) specifying whether you plan to participate as a dancer or a musician, and if the latter, what instrument you plan to provide.

Please note that masks are mandatory at all times inside the RCA. Workshop participants may remove their masks only while playing an instrument that requires it, or while actively eating or drinking.
