Lecture: Deep Improvisation and Dramaturgy across Difference

On Wednesday February 24th from 5-7 pm, core ICASP researcher Professor Ric Knowles will be talking about his experience working as a dramaturge with improvising theatre performers in Toronto. Following his lecture, "Deep Improvisation & Dramaturgy across Difference: "Chocolate Woman Dreams the Milky Way," participants will have the opportunity to ask questions in a warm, informal setting. Wine and refreshments will be available. View the conference poster here.

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.
