Improvisation Continuums: theorising practice across disciplines
Date: 12 - 14 April 2007
Hosted by: Cardiff School of Creative & Cultural Industries, University
of Glamorgan, Pontypridd, South Wales UK
Venue: Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, North Road, Cardiff

This interdisciplinary conference seeks to engage in theory development
on improvisation.
Confirmed Keynotes include Stephen Nachmanovtich (www.freeplay.com) and
Al Wunder.

The inaugural Improvisation Continuums conference recognizes the key
role that improvisation is playing in debates about creative practice
and theory, and is dedicated to providing a forum for discussion and
debate about the re-emerging place of improvisation in arts practice.

This event aims to facilitate dialogue and examine contemporary
expressions of improvisation.

There are five elements that are emerging as key frames for debate:
1. Finding edges: Unpacking the ways in which structure can
liberate creativity and risk
2. Body|Space|Content: Convergences in the concepts of musician,
dancers and actors in performance
3. Image, Sound, Feeling: Documenting improvised
performance/Documentation as improvisation
4. Listening, seeing and other elements of communicating:
audience/performer, audience/audience, performer/performer interactivity
and meaning making; and
5. A question of teaching: the improviser as learner
