Creativity Loves Constraints: Improvisation, Always our Very Best Alternative

BY GERT POPPE
IN MAASTRICHT

In business as in life, we try to control the future by making (business) strategies and (marketing) plans. But most of the time, things turn our differently, don’t go as planned. And then we fall back on improvisation.

Improvisation always is our very best alternative. We improvise when something unexpected happens; we improvise because we have forgotten to take certain influences into account; we improvise when people behave differently than we expected.

The best leaders, the best managers, the best professionals are not those that excel in analysis and making plans and strategies, but the ones that fully master and exploit their improvisation skills.

And, by the way, improvisation is also a very useful approach to living one’s life.

Improvisation: If you could call Europe, what would you say?

BY PECHAKUCHA NIGHT MAASTRICHT
@ VOL 32 ON FEB 06, 2017

In this improvisation on random slides, four volunteers from the audience got five slides each and skillfully improvised on the question: "If you could call Europe, what would you say?"

As none of them had seen the slides in advance, the sense of challenge and the high level of surprise greatly entertained the audience. 

A big thank you to Cristian Tala Sánchez, Osiris Hoepel, Cathy Kwanten and Fjære van der Stok for their participation!

Connection Through Improvisation

BY LARA MITOFSKY NEUSS
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 03, 2018

In the summer of 2017, Lara Mitofsky Neuss attended an Improvisation Workshop at Orford Musique in Canada taught by Swedish Percussionist Anders Ästrand. This workshop led to a recent performance and educational tour in Sweden. Her presentation focuses on her growth and connection both in performance and pedagogy related to connecting with herself and with students through improvisation. She takes the audience on a journey that she experienced while learning improvisation. She became more connected and open as she allowed herself to freely improvise without judgement. This growth has now allowed her to perform and teach improvisation around the world, sharing her experience with others.
