InterPlay Performance Untensive
June 6–11, 2017 • Tuesday 7 pm – Sunday noon
Join InterPlay co-founder Phil Porter for a deep dive into the improvisational art-making methods of InterPlay in this Performance Untensive. Creating movement, stories and sounds on the spot is thrilling and revelatory. How amazing is it that with just a bit of structure and some simple practices we can discover all sorts of stuff that wants to take shape in the world, both individually and as a group.
Over the course of this multiple-day event, you will have a chance to explore your own creativity, learn new techniques and tricks to expand your range, get support and affirmation for your own unique style of creating and have the luxurious opportunity to play, play, play.
On Saturday night, the group will present an informal performance in the InterPlayce studio open to the public and have a chance to reflect on that experience on Sunday morning.
No previous performance experience is necessary, but come with a willingness to take on some new challenges in an encouraging environment. Perhaps you don’t see yourself on stage, but are interested in the techniques of improvisation for your own benefit. If you have an InterPlay performance-style company or have thought about starting one, this untensive can provide some great ideas about how to make it all happen.
With Cynthia Winton-Henry, Phil co-founded WING IT! Performance Ensemble, which recently celebrated its 25th year. He has performed lots and lots of improvisation over the past years. He is exquisitely interested in the craft of InterPlay performance and believes that as we expand our improvisational range we get access to whole new territories of personal and community information.
