This is a workshop about being alone on stage without pre-prepared material, a limited amount of time and an audience sitting in front of you. What are the possible sources of inspiration for a performance created at the spur of the moment? How does the performance come into existence? What does the performer draw upon? How does he or she live each moment of the performance and collaborate with other elements besides his or her situation and body, such as music, silence, partner, space and text?
