ELaTIon: Enhancing Lives Through Improvisation

    Research output: Practice-Based and Non-textual ResearchDigital or Visual Media


    This film provides a document of a day (one of eight) of performances at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital which considered questions concerning appropriate performance methodologies for bespoke bedside performances. Through practice research musicians and dancers experimented with the fluid system, as articulated by BMC founder Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, in a performance context. We found that
    improvising with a sense of the fluids facilitated communication and an ability to alter states between performers and to be able to respond appropriately to our audience and the context within which we were performing.
