'Big Band' + 'My Way'

“Big Band” Directed by Omar Galvan (Argentina via Spain)

The official opening night of Improvention – International Festival of Unscripted Theatre Arts, features one of the most warmly received spontaneous works on the world circuit, today. Directed and conducted by outstanding Argentinian artist, Omar Galvan, “Big Band” is like a choir that is not restricted to music, alone, and is also enabled to soundscape, to talk, to rise from positions to perform theatrical scenes, dances, and more.

All of this is achieved seamlessly, even though improvised, through an adaptation of “Sound Painting”; a sign language designed for musical conductors by Walter Thompson. Omar Galvan has reimagined this system for improvised theatre, with memorable productions in Mexico, Spain, Vienna, Puerto Rico, Reunion Island, and now, Canberra.

After interval....

"My Way" by Glenn Hall (Perth)

An ensemble of Improvention participants and guests have been workshopping what is like to break all the rules we've learned about theatrical improvisation, as well as the rules we set for ourselves in life.
Theatre professional, Glenn Hall, of Perth's 'Just Improvise', and improvisation tutor at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, will lead a show that displays the results of a workshop about breaking rules. *Hardhat probably not required.

Part of Improvention 2017; an international festival of unscripted theatre arts, with performers and directors from Sweden, France, Argentina, Japan, Finland, United Kingdom & Australia
