Improvisation - a-n The Artists Information Company
Here are a few summarizing thoughts about that R & D and the piece’s future evolution: 1) This burgeoning piece feels like a physical return to basics. 2) There’s a connection with Mythology 3) One recurring theme is Re-Transformation 4) […]
Here’s Week 8: It was the last week of this R&D process. And I approached the rehearsal with mixed feelings. There was excitement. There was a bit of sadness. There was a lot of frustration. And there was some relief […]
Here’s week 7: It was my first week back into the studio after the Xmas break. I was feeling so tired and drained that it felt almost impossible to do anything while being in the studio. My mind was still […]

Here is Week 5: Change of gear in the process. I took a break from the template I’ve been using since the first studio session and decided instead to revisit certain improvisation moments from the previous rehearsals that still resonated until […]

I started this visual diary at the end of February, as part of the creative process for a new Solo performance piece. The aim of this visual diary was to reflect on that short but intense period and to share some aspects of the process as it has flourished.
Research informing long-term projects on the relationship between voice, improvisation and architecture, looking at notions of community. Supporting the development of the Artist Working Group, a London-based group who meet in houses and galleries around shared meals.
