Creative BCVIVO

Developed with the participation of Creative BC and the British Columbia Arts Council

Improvising Across Boundaries

An unconventional colloquium presented by Coastal Jazz in collaboration with the University of British Columbia and the International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation (IICSI).

Coastal Jazz IICSI will host a two-day colloquium on Saturday June 21 & Sunday June 22, 2014, focused on the theme of improvising across boundaries.

Presentations by members of the artistic and scholarly communities will focus around the ways in which improvisation – in music, in theatre, in dance and in text – can offer strategies and practices to help us to negotiate with boundaries and borders, with the challenges presented by the politics of gender, history and social class or by multiculturalism, by race and racism.

How can improvisation provide performers and audiences with the means to encounter and to come to terms with the ways in which we have undertaken various practices of inclusion and of exclusion, of community-building and of confrontation? Can improvisation enable new modes of cultural and social understanding?

Admission is free
Saturday June 21 & Sunday, June 22, 2014
