Compositional Improvisation

Antonio Ramos

In this course, we will connect with our inner Urban Shamanism – exploring what it’s like to be a part of our 21 century communities while bringing elements of nature back into our everyday lives. By feeling and sensing natural energies, we use our imaginations and incorporate them into our movement. Together we will build a practice that uses tools for improvising including journaling, explorations of objects and relationships, animism, stream of consciousness, power animals, dreams, etc. These practices guide us to reflect on the  micro and macro dynamics of ourselves in today’s society. They will allow us to express ourselves as individuals with individual beliefs systems that respond to and are connected to a larger wholistic structure. Through them we discover our individual and collective Dream Bodies as a point of departure for making composition.
