Improvisational Music Theatre

Creative workshop Improvisational Music Theatre was aimed at performers of contemporary opera and music theatre. The workshop was held in collaboration with music theatre company Vocal Motions Elastic Theatre (Great Britain) whose founders Jacek Ludwig Scarso and Maya Sapone – guest lecturers at the workshop – have presented the principles and situations of improvisational opera to the participants. Lasting over five hours, the workshop covered such topics as diverse vocal exercises, voice improvisations and experiments and acting practice. Spontaneous music theatre sketches were created, after providing the participants with fragments of scenarios. Collective workshop was attended by opera soloists and choir singers, as well as all other artists interested in performing arts: singing actors, dancers, practitioners of improvisation art and other enthusiasts.
