Sunday: 10am - 1pm
We will put the microscope in the absolute present, at the moment when improvisation happens. Practical exercises that aim to dissect the instant. The focus will be in your improvised lines, word by word, the subtle emotion, the latent history. If the Impro is a living organism, we will go to its DNA. A practical and minimalist workshop in which you will play with subtle physical, intellectual and emotional movements.
