Naked Stage: Improvocation S2E4
DEAR VISITORS! IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE NEW CONDITIONS FOR VISITING CULTURAL EVENTS, VTR CONDITIONS APPLY TO VISIT THE THEATER
Improvocations were developed in 2016 by Gorazd Pakozdi, Andreja Kopač and Žigan Krajnčan with the aim of researching improvisation together with the local community and exploring how people in this community understand and use improvisation. Improvocations choose a different format for each season. The first season of Improvocations was in the format of a studio meeting, the second in the format of a performative conference, the third in the format of a performance and the fourth season (from October 2021 onwards) is in the format of a performative publication. Improvocation at the Naked Stage will be the fourth episode of the second season, which means it will use the format of the second season: performative conference.
The enactors of the conference will be Radharani Pernarčič, Nikolina Komljenović, Kasia Chmara, Jacob Banigan and Billy Kissa. The host of Improvocation S2E4 will be Gorazd Pakozdi.
The schedule of the conference
5pm – 6.30pm First part: Introduction and contributions by the enactors
6.30pm – 7pm Break
7pm – 9pm Second part: Performative reflection based on enactors’ contributions and conclusion
In the first part each of the enactors will share their vision, experience and use of improvisation in their work. They will do so in their own way, in the medium they find most appropriate. In the second part there will be a performative discussion on improvisation based on the contributions of the enactors.
As the name of the format suggests, the conference will take place not only at the level of language, speech, statement, lecture, but also in other performative mediums.
The conference will have its conclusions which will be published first on the website and later, hopefully, also in the form of a newspaper.
