Thinking Spaces - Thursday April 3rd, 2014

Please join us for the next Thinking Spaces Reading Group session with Georgia Simms on Thursday, April 3, 2014 from 4-6 pm at the Guelph Public Library, Main Branch (100 Norfolk Street). A short description of this session is provided below:

'A Moving Dialogue'

An important, and perhaps underrated, Thinking Space is that of the body in motion. The meanings that we can create from body language in various spatial and contextual situations will serve as a fundamental focus of this learning experience. Using elements of improvisation, rhythm and choreography, learners will be offered a memorable, musical adventure involving dialogue, dance and performance, grounded in compassion and curiosity.

Georgia Simms is a dancer, choreographer and facilitator of creative processes for civic engagement. She is passionate about problem solving, partnerships and creativity. Her initiatives represent a synthesis of her experiences in both artistic practice and academics, and reflect a strong belief in the power of dance and conscious communication.

As always, the session is free and open to all.

So one of the things that improvisation has come to mean in the context of highly technological performance is that improvisation is the last claim to the legitimate presence of a human in the performance of music.
