The BAT Workshop!
October 31, 2021 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Back by popular demand and for one spooky Halloween night only, come out and learn the improvised format that you’ll have to *hear* to believe! The Bat is an amazing soundscape of sounds, words, images, and associations, a performance piece that takes place in the mind of the audience and offers an incredible sense of freedom for the performer. Not just a “Harold in the Dark,” learn the form as taught by Joe Bill from iO and Annoyance Theater in Chicago. A great tool for ensemble building or as a format for performance, you’ll fall in love with The Bat and all its possibilities.
This course will focus on:
- Deep listening
- Ensemble work
- Following associations and dream symbols
- Creating & sharing soundscapes and characters
- Letting go and finding freedom in the dark
