Improvisation in Music and Movement

24. – 25. November 2018, Facilitator: Susanne Brian & Frank Fiedler

The ritual of Authentic Movement and Voice offers you a powerful space which invites you to access your creative resources as well as the individual and collective unconscious and facilitates a deep contact to silence.

Movements and sounds emerging from that silence can be surprising and extraordinary as well as simple and effortless – a journey through different spheres, a discovery of possibilities reaching far beyond the personal, relating us back with our primordial being and our knowledge of healing.

The clear structure of the Authentic ritual, the time arrangement, the power of the energetic circle, the witnesses who attend the events regardfully and compassionately, and the concluding feedback circle offer a safe and trustful space. In this space anything that wants to emerge from the moment can actually be expressed. The feedback situation opens the opportunity to become conscious of and integrate the experiences and anything that has arisen from the unconscious.

Mostly we move with closed eyes and without music. Diving into the inner space and freeing ourselves from judgement happens easier without visually referring to the outside.

Leaving out music and, thus, a tendency for mood and rhythm, enhances listening to our own impulses. Attending and witnessing ourselves and others in authentic expression can be a touching and inspiring experience.

The Authentic ritual is initiated by a warm up, leading us into the body, the voice and the awareness of the moment, as to our crazy, wild and tender aspects.

Authentic Movement and improvisation are related in the sense that AM is the foundation and improvisation is the Gestalt. To truly perceive one’s own impulse and to follow it, serves in musical improvisation the purpose to shape music. Both planes – AM and improvisation – are about starting something without knowing where it is leading to. And in both planes it leads to something else, as what was “intentional”: to the unforeseeable (ital. “improvviso”).

That way, we encounter the familiar musical instrument, as well as one’s own voice and the body as transformed: they are no longer a tool of our intention, but a Gestalt of our intuition.
