The Improvisation Summer Course was created as a platform for artists to gather and create real time interdisciplinary compositions towards live public performances. The artists who are registered on the Improvisation Summer Course come from all over the world and have various backgrounds in music, dance, performance art, acting and other related educations.
The aim of this course is to encourage collaboration among artists, interdisciplinary practice and research towards real time composition with the question “What is your relationship to public”?
Every morning there is a three hour Body Work and Music Theatre Workshop with Katie Duck.
Every afternoon there are three and a half hour guided rehearsals with Katie Duck and real time light designer Ellen Knops, individual rehearsals and technical rehearsals.
Every weekend The Freakatoni Witchy Weekend Festival is held on the Friday and Saturday evenings at the OT301, in the Studio 1 theatre and in the adjoining Bar. The evenings are supported by the Amsterdam Crew, MC artist Xenia Perek and Ellen Knops (Light design).
