Simon Rose (baritone saxophone) and Ingo Reulecke (dance) perform in duo and countless other projects. Both are extremely experienced mediators and active in artistic research.

The session is open to musicians and dancers as well as interested people of all disciplines.

We will work on basic key issues like

  • Trust
  • Integration of the body
  • Collaboration
  • Perception
  • Improvisation as an aesthetic practice
  • Intention
  • Process and
  • Aspect of performance

The practice-oriented session will work on embodying these themes and engage with the character of the group. Special knowledge is not required.

We teach in German and English.

This course, originally scheduled for March, has been moved to July 2021 due to the Corona lockdown

In times of Corona, special rules also apply in exploratorium, which are summarised here: https://exploratorium-berlin.de/en/regulations-in-times-of-corona/

Why Improvisation?

Improvisation offers the opportunity to invent music, and to do so without notation. Moreover, this form of creativity is special because it takes place in a group setting. Like in a good conversation, the players develop ideas, which they would not have been able to find otherwise, by inspiring each other.

In the exploratorium we focus on so-called free improvisation, which needs neither scales nor harmony or rhythm schemes. The sound as such is the basis of music invention.

Lerning improvising and improvising learning is about collecting experiences in forming music, understanding music „from the inside out“ and getting involved in the musical flow. That requires alertness in every moment and intense listening to the other players as well as to the collective musical process.

Free improvisation means taking responsibility and contributing your own impulses while simultaneously adapting to a collective at any moment. Learning this is learning for life. To experience this in concert means to participate in a special adventure.
