Researching Ensemble: Improvisation Via Song

a physical theatre laboratory series led by Julie Becker

The Dance Complex, Cambridge, MA

Sundays March 6, 13, 20 3:30-5:30pm

Tuesdays March 8, 15, 22 8-10pm

Sliding scale $10-$20 per session.

This lab will be 6 sessions focusing on integrating group singing and physical improvisation. How can we allow group actions to rise from the song itself, rather than impose upon the song or view voice and action as separate "layers" to add or subtract? Working with traditional polyphonic songs, our aim will be to find how we channel them through our voices, our bodies, the body of the ensemble, our listening, our actions, connections, relations, rhythms; making their hidden worlds visible.

Please RSVP/send questions to

Intensive Workshop in Contact Improvisation with MARTIN KEOGH
May, 20-22, 2016 @ Tanzfabrik Berlin

COST: Early bird 180€, thereafter 200€
REGISTRATION: For registration details and workshop questions please contact me by e-mail at


– Deepen your investigation and understanding of Contact Improvisation –

In this three-day workshop we will cultivate our individual Contact Body. You are invited to enter leisurely somatic research, dancing and discovery. With hands on work, games, the skills and thrills of the form, and the unique physicality of The Contact Body we will savor and rock the boundaries between states of allowing and mindful intention. We will focus on the pelvic bowl to become more intimately rooted in our dance and being.

What does the Contact Body look and feel like?
Some Qualities:
* Pliant strength
* Supple and resilient
* Organized and released
* Limbs that move autonomously from one another
* Ability to see and move into the backspace
* A visceral understanding of the spiral
* Breath that is felt from the ground to the marrow
* An enhanced capacity for sensation and pleasure
* ... (your unique qualities ...)

Contact Improvisation requires a courageous willingness – but never so much as when we dance in the absence of will – those moments when we drop the reigns and, nowhere bound, allow our animal to carry us.

We will explore:
* Moving from a base of sensation
* Dancing with a shared central axis
* Seeking ease in going off balance
* Finding the spontaneous acrobatics of the form
* Spending more time in nuance, disorientation, and extended follow-through
* A greater capacity for sensation, risk, and pleasure

“My greatest sense of accomplishment comes from seeing students increase their capacity for sensation and risk—seeing them dance less with their “ideal” and more with their partner—and the profound gratification of introducing contact improvisation to those who then realize they have found the dance form they were seeking all their lives. I attempt to teach and model that the beauty and reach of our questions, in the end, determine the beauty and reach of our lives.”

It is my pleasure to announce that we are opening for applications for fall 2016, for the 2 year, English language Authorial Acting Master's Program (AAMP) at DAMU, Prague, Czech Republic. 
The Authorial Acting Masters Program at DAMU comes out of the humanist and dialogical traditions. It views performance first and foremost as creative public behavior. 
Studies: Authorial Acting students are guided towards becoming creative personalities - capable of making and standing by their own authorial solo and group work based on their own personal themes. Students gain experience in key tools of human expression: voice, speech, movement, writing, and Interacting with the Inner Partner (IwIP), but also in philosophy, psychology, theater history, dramaturgy and acting.

Workshop in Contact Improvisation & Performance Research

February 26-28, 2016

Tanzfabrik Berlin

COST: Early bird 150€, thereafter 170€

REGISTRATION: For registration details and workshop questions please contact me by e-mail at



Scott: „My main work is as a choreographer and I rigorously investigate partnering and acrobatic movement ideas. This allows me to bring unique movement vocabulary and training to my workshops.“

We will also work with ensemble dancing. Dancing, contacting with connection and awareness of the group.

I’d like to create an atmosphere that has more intention and group focus than a jam, but less stringent than a formal performance. We’ll develop our ensemble work and gain performance skills and resources. Contact Improvisation will be an element of our practice, an element to mix with soloing, ensemble and compositional work.“

We will take single elements (e.g. a flying skill) into scores. We will use this progression:

1) Connecting with yourself, using body sensations or images as they come up or the stories in your head. Noticing impulses to move, being able to feel your impulses, and pick which ones to follow.

sat11oct2015: “Playing with myself” – video theatre lab for actors, dancers and performers

for actors, dancers, performers, directors.

An actor on stage. One camera records him. Reproject its action behind him. We can modify it, change reproduction rate, speed, direction, display mode. We can relate to it, creating a game with the myself i was a moment ago – or long before. We can intervene in real time on what’s happening on stage, playing between an actor and an avatar, played by the actor himself. We can then film-edit instantaneously what camera is filming, mixing actual record to prerecorded video loops.

Is all that puppetry? Video performance? Mime? Live cinema? All this and more.

An open lab where we’ll experiment together interactive video-theatre language, bringing our own ideas and creating desire

Workshop “QLab3 and digital live show control”

We’ll explore recent digital technologies born for theatre, dance, VJing and live show. We’ll learn to use powerful softwares for live events control.

We’ll experiment hardware interfaces and sensors born to interact with movements happening on the stage, aiming to create an interaction between actions and multimedia settings. We’ll discover interactive possibilities between actor, interfaces and software, to extend overall possibilities.
