Monday Night Improv Session
Centered in Vienna, connected to the world.
Whether it’s an inspiring quasi-tune or a commitment to play music from the heart of the pyjama, free improv embraces no traditions while establishing a few of its own. In the time that the global online troupe Monday Night Improv Sessions has been together as a melange of acoustic, electric, movement, visual artists, and performers, it has captured the spirit of the Lockdown-Hausschuhe-style online event experience in free improvisation with super sophistication and fostered a novel performance approach to roll out some truly wild sounds and moves. You are warmly invited to participate as a performer or audience member for your next online recreation, enlightenment, SoDi party, reception or function.
All are welcome. OK let’s break this down a little:
All means anyone interested, regardless of ability, in participating as a musician, dancer, poet, visual artist, spectator, sound engineer the list is open.
Welcome means you will experience the spirit of our desire to communicate online in this strange age.
Out of the restricted situation in 2020, we were unable to improvise together in the same physical space. Defiantly, we did not let that hinder us from participating in regular free improv sessions. We are talking about free to all and free in style on an international level! We continue to explore the virtual realm of improv via Zoom, even as things begin to open up again.
This is the time to thank all the wonderful improvisers who have been involved with the Monday night sessions. Your support, encouragement, contributions of time, technical advise, audiovisual editing, intriguing creativity, humor, and inquisitiveness are truly appreciated.
Saturday Night Improv Session
Since 2021, another session has been added to the free improv realm! All are welcome to join in on Saturdays.
…powerful, experimental, workshop sessions …
With the increasing online emphasis in the improv realm, many people enquire about how to be involved. ImprovFreedom is centered in Vienna and connected to the world! The concept brings Elisabeth’s expertise and experience together with your desire to improvise with freedom and fluency. ImprovFreedom offers you the opportunity to adventure into the world on free improv through the online weekly workshop*. 2021 and beyond is going to challenge us with what we are able to do in the live performance sector. It feels like only yesterday that we could buy a ticket and go to a show. Here is a brief time line that leads to why ImprovFreedom is vital to all creative people:
2019: SARS-CoV-2 (formally known as Covid19) turned our lives inside out. What was private is public and what was assumed is scrutinised. The live-music scene went into a deep coma. Online opportunities opened up the way we communicate and meet other people.
2020: It is with perseverance and continued necessity to make music with other fine musicians as well as share my consummate knowledge that ImprovFreedom was developed. Designed for beginners, inquisitive learners, seasoned professionals desiring change, these powerful, experimental workshop sessions have more than meets the eyes, ears, mouth, heart, and mind.
2021: Time to recalibrate and celebrate. This is a drop-in weekly workshop for those interested in participating in the realm of free improvisation. Delve into new and remixed sounds, sights, movements, words, and ideas.
