Improvisation Guru Michael Schumacher Coming to Perth

TURA New Music and Michael Schumacher Workshops and performance opportunity:

STRUT Dance is proud to announce the confirmation of Michael Schumacher’s Master Workshop 10-27 November 2014.

Michael Schumacher has been working in the field of improvisation for more than 25 years with William Forsythe, Jiri Kylian and Opera’s enfant terrible Peter Sellars.

“Michael is the contemporary guru of performance improvisation”

He is a true master and shape-shifter, working within ever diverse and innovative constellations of artists across Europe, the United States and Japan.

The workshop will focus on tools of instant composition in relationship to live music and will transition straight into performances of The Bluest Room with TURA New Music in the Mini MoveMe Improvisation Festival: 25-27 November.

As part of the Festival, Michael will also be performing his Dans Le Jardin series with renowned cellist Alex Waterman on the music of J.S. Bach in the courtyard of the State Theatre Centre WA: 28/29 November 2014
