At the Intersection with Louise Campbell - November 15th

A free workshop/presentation on improvised music and movement
Monday November 15th, 5:30 pm, Massey Building (Upstairs), University of Guelph

What happens when we improvise? How do we tap into creative impulse and instinct? How does improvisation across disciplines such as movement and music influence and inform our play? What creative and therapeutic questions come into play? Drawing on my experience as a musician and mover in Laban Bartenieff Movement Fundamentals, Contact Improvisation and Zen Shiatsu, this presentation will explore how improvisatory movement practices can be used to inform and stimulate creative processes in music improvisation.

Please wear comfortable clothes and bring the instrument of your choice. Come ready to move and play!

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.
