a frame for group improvisation as performance.

Improvisation is sometimes described as a game of "Yes, And." This exploration adds "or," focusing group practices to identifying and engaging with what’s happening in the moment. With awareness’s of audience and performer's eye, "yes, and, or" invites a look at how our choices place potency (or dilute) what the audience experiences.

PARTICIPANTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO SIGN UP FOR THE WHOLE SERIES SO AS TO DEEPEN THE ENSEMBLE PRACTICE. A $30-50 DONATION PER SERIES SUPPORTS THE CONTINUATION OF PROVIDING SPACE FOR ARTIST TO WORK CREATIVELY ON IMPROVISATIONAL PERFORMANCE.
