Manipulation — Intentional Touch in Improvisation
Friday, 05.05.17, 13:00 – 15:30
In movement improvisation outright manipulation (mani-pulation – to move something with your hands to a certain place) i.e. intentional gripping and pushing or pulling another person often is frowned upon. For good reasons, that is. In this workshop, however, we will break this rule and play with intentional physical manipulation. We will explore possible reactions, be it anticipating, resisting, or totally giving in, as well as energies and moods that come with manipulation. Eventually we will add language and explore dramaturgical possibilities of this work.
