Watch Out! 2 different times!
This workshop is for anybody interested in improvising with others. We will work alone, in pairs and as a group, practicing moving and using our voices together. We will explore different ways of generating material and relating that material to others, developing skills of listening, noticing and responding in performance. The workshop will aim to facilitate ease and confidence in performing and will be a lot fun!

Double Act — Duet with Kate Hilder
Kate and Seke have worked together for the past 8 years in performance, as co-teachers and as founder members of Stranger than Fiction – an improvised performance platform in London. They met at a solo improvisation workshop with Andrew Morrish, and have been profoundly influenced by his model of performance practice. They have performed duets in Berlin, Gothenburg, London, Brighton and Hastings. They work without any pre-planned structure or theme, preferring to find both in the moment of performance. Their duets encompass storytelling, humour and abstract expressionism.
