The official opening of the Improfestival Karlsruhe features one of the most warmly received spontaneous works on the world circuit, today. Directed and conducted by outstanding Argentinian artist, Omar Galvan, the show is like a choir that is not restricted to music, alone, and is also enabled to soundscape, to talk, to rise from positions to perform theatrical scenes, dances, and more.
All of this is achieved seamlessly, even though improvised, through an adaptation of “Sound Painting”; a sign language designed for musical conductors by Walter Thompson. Omar Galvan has reimagined this system for improvised theatre, with memorable productions in Mexico, Spain, Austria, Puerto Rico, Reunion Island, Australia and now, Karlsruhe.
