Marcelle Kosman is an MA student in the University of Guelph's School of English and Theatre Studies. Her current research explores the disappearing body and apocalyptic anxieties in Jonathan Goldstein's CBC Radio programme WireTap- a major departure from her ongoing interest in post-modernist Canadian poetry. Marcelle moved to Guelph with her partner Trevor and their feline companions, Beowulf and Cozette, after a seven-year stint in Montreal. Her ambition is to one day host her own CBC Radio programme, preferably on Radio 3.

Improvisation implies a deep connection between the personal and the communal, self and world. A “good” improviser successfully navigates musical and institutional boundaries and the desire for self-expression, pleasing not only herself but the listener as well.
