60_minutes

research platform & performance series

 
There is not even any need to say how essential time – duration, tempo, rhythm, timing – is as an element of every improvisation. However the duration is not always the matter of completely free artistic decision, but sometimes it is due to given circumstances. I’ve noticed, that Berlin offers much more opportunities to stage short improvised pieces than the longer ones.

Assuming that improvisations purposefully designed for longer duration are an exciting field for research, which brings different challenges, opens different perspectives and invites different ways of working/rehearsing than working with micro-scores of 15 or 30 minutes, I have launched the 60_minutes performance series in 2015. The wish was to provide space for open questions and for a multitude of possible approaches in the field of durational interdisciplinary improvisation/ instant composition.

Since more than one year of regular meetings, consisting of a sixty minutes long showing/performance and an artist talk, the series has developed to an exciting, professional exchange platform for interdisciplinary improvisers. The setting of the time frame has proved to be an successful trigger for artistic inquiries into how improvisation can be choreographically, compositionally or dramaturgically structured: What are the self-imposed tasks and chosen tools to keep the tension curve and to maintain the identity of an improvised piece for sixty minutes?

The 60_minutes platform wishes to support the exchange and collaborations between artists from different disciplines upon the above mentioned topics.
