Event description

Description

EYMF and ELjam are delighted to present the following FREE training

Improvisation from two different perspectives


10.30-11am arrivals, tea and coffee - provided


11AM-1PM: IMPROVISATION WITH TOM BANCROFT

A general fun hands on session looking at the psychology of creativity and approaches to teaching and learning improvisation and helping to make improvisation feel safe, manageable, and normal in group settings.

We will look at fun techniques for exploring free improvisation in groups - focussing on the question of what to play and why. We will also look at techniques for learning to improvise with rhythm, triads and scales using ideas of form and developing phrase building skills and strategies.

Please bring an instrument!


1.00PM-2.00PM - FREE TIME/NETWORKING/LUNCH (BRING YOUR OWN)


2.00PM-4.00PM INTERPLAY WITH MAIRI CAMPBELL

Mairi will be introducing the group to a method of group improv called InterPlay. In essence, InterPlay is a philosophy and practice that builds self-confidence and a sense of well-being through the expressive arts. Each class can progress in a number of ways, but, generally, a class begins with a warm-up and then moves into a series of "forms" which are simple structures, easy and incremental activities, involving interactions with another or others. Emphasis is based on what feeds, nourishes and engages you.. in an environment of acceptance, not
criticism.
