Contemporary Language | 1-day workshop | Flock Festival

Language is an important tool of the improviser, but due to its improvised nature, it’s mostly used as a vehicle of meaning or an expression of wit, sacrificing quality of words over efficiency of the scene. A means rather than a purpose…

This workshop aims to look at the spoken word in improvisation as though it were a written creation, a rich support for thoughts and emotions, as well as poetic expression. In short: to play as if it has been written and care less about what is said than how it is said. We will take inspiration from contemporary theatre authors, whether they be real or imaginary, and will amuse ourselves (I hope!) with the manipulation of words and the structures of dialogues to create aesthetics of the improvised speech.

Any level of second-language English is welcome!

Sunday June 30 — 10:00 to 16:00 (1h lunch break)
