Playing together (ensemble) for all instruments

Playing together (ensemble) for all instruments – Theme: “Mixer a tiroir” – Eric Theze
Saturday 11.00 – 15.30
Location – Kerk van Nu

Music workshop : open to any instruments and voices. Any levels (except beginners).

Eric’s proposition : we first play a mixer (chapeloise or circle), and we work on small forms of couple dances, which come to fit there : waltz, asymmetrical waltz, or mazurka …

The aim is to make it clear for all dancers : now it is a “scottish” or an “8 time waltz”…. without words ! And the aim for dancers is to try new form with new partners (mixer). We put the stress on dialog between dancers and musicians. Musician are invited to create their own melodies, from a grid of chords (the same grid is used on mixer, and different couple dances, to help to remain concentrated on the various forms of dances).

After some 3 time, 5,  8 time waltz (332 and 323), and 11 time, we will play hybrid forms like 5-3-3-3, or 8-3-3-3… If musician enjoy asymetrical mazurka, we’ll play 11 time mazurka and 13 time mazurka.
