18:00 – 20:00 Improvisation Workshop by ICEBERG (open to the public)

In this improvisation workshop, members of ICEBERG will lead participants through their processes of solo and duet improvisation. Some of the themes we will explore are:

Music/Sound and Movement improvisation
Text and Movement improvisation
Duets and the various relationships between improvisers

Over the last year, ICEBERG have been researching the above relationships through training in spaces such as CCA, The Work Room, GTAC and Woodlands work space, as well as through performing. These two hours will offer participants an insight on the strategies and processes ICEBERG artists use to approach these themes.

The workshop is open to performers, musicians, dancers, educators and students.

ICEBERG are supported by CCA and The Work Room.
