DRHA 2018 Workshop
Fill the Room – the art of meaningful multimedia improvisation
Digital Research in Humanities and the Arts 2018, September 9-12, 2018, Villeta, Malta
John D. Mitchell and Halley Wilcox represented DATURA at DRHA and led participants in the Fill the Room workshop.
In phase I (morning) workshop facilitators work separately with participant groups in the following disciplines/areas. The focus will be on creating material for later use in interdisciplinary improvisation. They will lead each group of participants in the creation of performance material including techniques of listening, responding and leading.
In phase II (afternoon) all participants come together and put the experiences from phase I into practice. An understanding of techniques covered in the morning will guide workshop participants towards embodying a shared experience with members of DATURA. Each group will create, rehearse and perform an improvised work based upon the material created earlier in the day.
