In Streugut we slam several media together: movement, speech, voice and a musical instrument. We all come from varied trainings: our approach and understanding of expressing a feeling state, mood, attitude and/ or energy differs. We find common ground in the shared ability to listen, sense and pay attention. Whether it is a flash of movement, or a repeated phrase, we notice each other, following the sound and energy of the room or the music of the improvisation.
