This class is for anybody interested in improvising with others. We will work alone, in pairs and as a group, practising moving and using our voices together. Through guided explorations games and scores, we will explore different ways of generating material and relating that material to others. We will develop the skills of listening, noticing and responding. There will be the opportunity to watch each other in our explorations. Seke Chimutengwende brings all his experience and humour as performer into this class. His teaching facilitates ease and confidence in performing and a joyful approach to improvising together.
