FREE IMPROVISATION [IMPROWIZACJA WOLNA]
LIGHTER - 3-DAYS WORKSHOP
What is free improv?
Free improvisation is being in an open mode.
It is a state of full perception, a child perception. Being in an unfamiliar room where every event is the first and each of a new subject is the only one.
It is an attempt to allow yourself to act freely. To enter into an action that you don’t need to understand, to submit to something greater than you, to trust the unexpected. It means acting without prejudice and conventions, releasing freshness and uncompromisingness.
Free improvisation workshops are focused on careful perception and spontaneous, unhampered action.
We will be looking for the state of integration of the emotions, movement and voice. We will try to find an encounter with space and a partner: perception, interpretation and certainty of reaction. The basis of individual work is getting rid of mental blocks through physical and vocal action. Then we will be working on expanding the possibilities of expression. Working with a partner begins with partial self-abandonment. To notice and react to partner action we have to bring some of our attention to the surface. This is the path of including the external to our internal line of action.
A big part of the workshop includes physical and vocal training, working with tools. Free improvisation workshop is a non-theatrical workshop. Improvisation admits observers, but does not require them. It uses techniques of working with the body and voice, prop and space, similar to acting techniques, but focuses primarily on authenticity, not on acting.
