This workshop is a laboratory on the many kinds of listening we, as improvisers, can engage to enrich the work we do on stage. We will goof around in rhythm, dynamics, tone and maybe, just maybe, will push our awareness to hear things that are impossible to hear. Sounds interesting, right? This workshop is especially good for experienced improvisers interested in the limits of the work we do and where those lists may or may not be. It is also good for performers bored of the patterns they are finding themselves in. It might sound like weird hippy stuff and in a way it is...but in a good way.
