Conference: The TransDisciplinary Improvisation Network (TIN): What’s In A Name?, London UK
October 23, 2015 - October 24, 2015
The TransDisciplinary Improvisation Network (TIN) presents What’s in a Name?, a conference at Middlesex University, October 23-24, 2015. Strongly grounded in the creative arts and led by expert improvisers, this event will be an opportunity to articulate and elaborate practices and contribute to the emerging critical discourses of all things improvisatory, refining understandings of creative approaches, terminologies and significances, in effect using the modalities of the improvised (and the various practices we bring) as a way to consider the nature, benefits and problematics of improvisation. There will be guest keynote presentations by: David Toop, (“Into the Maelstrom: Music, Improvisation and the Dream of Freedom”), Sondra Fraleigh (“Themes of ‘Improvising Natures’ Sticky Morphology”), and Gary Peters, (“Naming the Void: the Language of the Improvised Event”).
Sondra Fraleigh will also lead a session on improvising the chakra energy centers of the body. In the evening an improvised performance event, in conjunction with the Inside Out Festival, features Jonathan Impett, Simon Limbrick, Ben Dwyer, Helen Kindred, Robert Vesty, Vida Midgelow, Suzanne Martin and guests.
