A few places left for Joao Fiadeiro's workshop week - Real Time Composition


Real Time Composition (RTC) — developed and systematised by choreographer Joà £o Fiadeiro since 1995 — suggests that the quality of the decisions we take, individually or in group, can be substantially optimised if we manage to get round the ‘interference' of free will in the moment of decision. This strategy, counter-intuitive forà‚ it radically questions our habits and patterns of behaviour, enables the relevance and coherence of our actions to get closer to those we find within emergent and self-organised biological or physical systems. Instead of focusing on what we expect or wish to get, the RTC proposes that we focus on the removal of the ‘noise' that prevents us from reading a situation as it presents itself, as well as on the reduction of the ‘friction' inherent to communication processes, which creates resistances to the fluidity and the lucidity of reasoning. The training of this method consists in providing the practitioner with the tools for him or her to accept ‘giving up' her condition of ‘creator', assuming a position of ‘mediator' and ‘facilitator' of what happens. His or her only ‘creative act', in the frame of this method, is the mastery with which (s)he manages tension, the balance and potential of the material (s)he is working with, letting things happen by themselves, when they really have to. ‘Joà £o Fiadeiro works exactly with the matter of the ‘in- between' and his method is based upon the challenge to produce, by cultivating molecular clarity, a re- assessment of what freedom in improvisation might be, as well as of what the creativity of the artist might be.'à‚ Fernanda Eugénio, artist/anthropologist Biography and full information at Booking: 020 7091 9650 / Location: Siobhan Davies Studios 85 St George's Road, London SE1 6ER Siobhan Davies Studios is wheelchair accessible and the ID programme is open to disabled and non-disabled professional dance artists.à‚
