I am engaged in the practice of improvisation both as a process for generating material, a performance technique and as a way of being in the world which fosters a continual sense of wonder, surprise, play and freshness.
I am also interested in the route meaning of the word which is 'to be taken by surprise' so it is not about making things up on the spot, more a bout how what is happening comes about.
