De Quincey Co warmly invites you to share our research

One-Hour Improvisation

FRIDAY 27 MARCH 3 – 4pm
Free entry and refreshments

73 Pitt Street, Redfern

We have a fabulous gang of artists who invite you to join us for our annual exploration of improvisation. Culminating a 3-day laboratory, we invite you to join us in uncovering and shaping each moment!

We welcome you to stay afterwards for refreshments and to let us know your thoughts as we unpack the process of improvisation between audiences and performers.

Leading on from a research process initiated by De Quincey Co in 2006, Tess de Quincey conducts this year’s Impro-Exchange lab. These labs are designed to explore the nature of improvisation between dancers from different backgrounds, ages and traditions. The aim is to generate a forum for dialogue, exchange and discussion around strategies and processes of improvisation.

More than two hundred artists have engaged in this process since inception, and a pooling of thirty dancers who regularly participate has developed over the last fourteen years. This lab brings together contributing dancers from New Zealand, Victoria as well as from NSW. The build-up of shared experience that emerges is a major objective of the labs.

Public transport & Parking:  Redfern and Central train stations are within walking distance of Redfern Town Hall whilst bus routes 309 and 310 stop on Redfern Street, near Pitt Street. There is limited 2-hour parking on Pitt Street.
