At Wilderness (August 2015)
Improvised Morning Wake Up Call
Join Seke and friends for a series of morning warm-up sessions, followed by moments of improvised performance dotted around the Wilderness landscape.
Seke’s morning sessions are an opportunity to wake up the body and mind through stimulating improvisation exercises that will leave you feeling fully grounded and ready for the day ahead. Sharpen the senses and clear the head with simple movement explorations.
Seke will also be joined by professional performers to create spontaneous performances located around the NOW tent. Using guided explorations, game and scores, these moments will appear in the moment and disappear into the past, creating a timeline of the impromptu, unplanned and unscripted.
2 Minute Interview
How do your workshops with NOW Live Events relate to being in the moment?
I will be working with improvisation in performance.
What are you most looking forward to doing within your NOW Live Events slot?
Not knowing what will happen in the performance. Meeting new people in the workshop.
