Music as a Partner – Daisy Varewyck & Ingmar Dasseville
In improvisational theatre, music is often treated as decoration. Filler in the background which is nice to hear, but frequently ignored by the players on stage. In this workshop, we will show you that music can be so much more. Using a hands-on approach, we will explore what kind of offers a musician can make to an improviser and vice versa. You can let the music speak for you, or oppose it on purpose. Our goal is that after this workshop, you let the music(ian) be a part of the stage as much as any other actor. So buckle up, and let the music take the wheel once in a while!
This workshop is interesting for both performers as well as musicians.
