How to improvise on a symposium?

This question became practice during a four day ongoing event at ExtraCity. Participants of the master courses of St. Lucas, Artesis, and AKV/St. Joost worked together in finding out what “symprovising” could be.

Let’s approach theoretical reflection through improvising. Trying to reflect and work on the spot: à l’improviste; using skills, work, procedures, ideas, texts, inventions, and coincidence.

The experiment was rounded up during a final presentation of results, stories, and thoughts with spotlighted spiderwebs, dance, collages, broken walls, and sadly a piece of Remy’s finger cut off.

With: Kasper Bosmans, Elsbeth Ciesluk, Remy Habets, Pim Kersten, Theodora Kotsi, Saori Kuno, Raphael Langmair, Tanya Long, Piotr Piskozub, Nelleke Schiere, Anna Stergiou, Timothy Van de Laar.
