about:
Minimal Improvisation is a form of collective improvisation in sound and movement, developed by Jennie Zimmermann and Gisbert Schürig.
Minimal Improvisation balances individuality, spontaneity and choice – characteristics of contemporary improvisation in music and dance – with principles of Minimal Music like repetition and gradual change.
Focusing on processes of negotiation and cooperation, we bring to the stage qualities like receptivity, mutual sensitivity, consensus and dynamics of collective interaction.
Within a tranquil process, structures emerge from interaction and may dissolve again, or gain momentum and lead to a dynamic flow of activity.
