Improspections2012

international improvisation festival, 6th edition

Realised as part of the project Move the Neighbourhood.

Move the Neighbourhood is an Improspections project aimed at establishing an intergenerational, interdisciplinary and international dialogue, mainly through improvisation in music and dance media.

The starting point of every activity is the “human measure”, a man, the citizen of the neighbourhood who carries within, in the present, the history of the place and whose everyday life creates the identity of the place and points to the changes that occurred, as well as those that we want to occur.

Realized in collaboration with res urbanae at Otokar Keršovani square 

Res urbanae is the social platform of the Association for interdisciplinary and intercultural research and Heinrich Böll Foundation which examines the concepts of togetherness, common goods, as well as the existing and alternative structures and forms of managing social, cultural and spatial resources in local communities. In the period from 19 to 21 June 2012 Improspections and res urbanae organized a number of performative activities at Otokar Keršovani square with an intention to indicate the suppressed potential of that urban space and the devastated urban intervention by Bernardo Bernardi that marks it.
