“As a baritone saxophonist, all of my daily practice (all technical work as well as open explorations) and performances are processed in some form through an energetic modality. These include the experiential anatomy work, energetic centers, and embodiment explorations.” (Joe Tornabene)
Joe Tornabene will demonstrate his special work in a lecture. It will be interesting for instrumentalists, singers and dancers because it demonstrates a different approach to the source of improvisation. He will deepen this first insight in the following days in a 2-day workshop (please register separately).
Lecture: Joe Tornabene
The Lecture will be in English

An 8 hour open Workshop for sharing and encouraging dialogue and practice in embodiment and energy quality awareness and transformation.
The body systems, space, voice, movement, touch, text, time, imagination, improvisation.
From 1997 until 2002, at The Advanced School of Dramatic Arts, APHX, Athens, Greece, Joe Tornabene began developing and using an embodiment practice with his acting students which he calls the inter-psychic characters. The training and subsequent process is focused towards the embodiment of energy quality and its transition to the stage. The three principal inter-psychic characters are the Shadow, the Guest and the Bystander. The Main Character is the scripted stage character or its equivalent.
The workshop explorations culminate in a performance.
