-Tuesday 13 June –19:30-21:30 Dance Improvisation: The Sonic Body

part of Bodlabot OT301 Improvisation Workshop Series 

The work will start from the body, and how can we differentiate movement intention and quality and place that in relation to sound.In particular in this workshop we will work with phrasing emerging from the use of breath, how the consciousness of breath can be a tool for creating musicality in the movement or movement in the music. We will explore different tones of physicality and (for musicians) qualities of sound, refining the readability of intention in sound and movement, to be able to commmunicate with the material being generated.The aim is to encourage each performer to be engaged in their own personal research of physicality of sound and movement, with curiosity and playfulness.
