Learning objectives



Course content

Improvisation is experienced as a source of inspiration, as a route to discover one's own movement potential, as a means of generating material and as a means of increasing sensitivity, awareness and self-reflection. Different inputs from different teachers and sources will be experienced and may include a wide spectrum of stimuli as sources of inspiration (visual, sensory, auditory, coincidence, limitations, themes, conceptual, imaginary, everyday actions, ...). Students engage with specific practices of dance artists and explore their personal resonance with each input. Some aspects of the course will result in performance.
