E. Boudiere (FR), J. Melnik (LT) - Movement, inner music and instant composition

September 24-26, Vilnius

It does not matter who you are or where you come from, musicality and dance exists in every body, every voice. Everyone is born with the potential to develop his/her hearing, listening, speaking and moving skills to sing, dance and play.

We invite you to explore and use improvisation as a way to find your inner music and movement and bring the shared space of sound and dance into instant composition. We want to exchange with you our invisible tools for bringing more presence, breath and depth into improvisation. We invite you to discover how to build something in the present moment with anybody by accepting the difference of others as well as ourselves. (Read more)

We will enjoy the pleasure of sound, listening and following, experience harmony and surprise, and the simple joy of presence. We invite you to assert yourself, your taste, your choice and your way of being and together create with a clearer intention. You can give up your fears and doubts about your abilities, allow yourself to open up and find a free way to express yourself in creative improvisation.

At the end of the workshop there will be the possibility to share what we have found with an engaged audience.

Emmanuel Boudière is an author, songwriter, singer, drummer, guitarist, with a great interest in music improvisation connected with movement. His music is inspired by traditional music of Asia (Tibet, India, Mongolia), Africa (South Africa, Mali, Maghreb), and also by the young Afro-American styles (gospel, funk, soul, Reggæ, Jazz…). He borrows the simplicity and authenticity of those works to travel to the roots of our own Inner music, movement and silence.

His main interest is to bring a real presence by sound and find the way to breathe in it. Working with the space of the sound, he explores body percussion and beat box to see how body can be the first source of music. By mixing the practice of contact improvisation and dance improvisation with the music improvisation, he wants to break the inner borders between the two (music and dance) that are often created by the outside - stereotypes of society. He is trying to develop a tool for communication between the dancers and musicians to make them share the musicality of the movement.

Being self-educated in his artistic development, Emmanuel had a chance to meet on his way some inspiring musicians as Keith Terry, Marcelo Pretto, Ezra, Haim Isaacs. Putting together his own discovery with their tools and with ethnic practice as Circle Songs (Impro developed by Bobby MC Ferrin), Polyrhythmic, Polyphony, Sound painting, Sound Writing, he has created his own method.

In 2003 he created his own Art Company “Cie Tribu Terre des Rêves” (Dreams as a fuel for life) cooperating with other involved artists. The main aim of his association is to support artistic creativity and develop meetings between different kinds of artistic practices.

Julija Melnik is leading regular contact improvisation classes, jams and workshops in Lithuania (Vilnius, Kaunas ). She has also taught outside of Lithuania (Ukraine, Latvia, Russia and USA). Julija is actively participating in International CI festivals, teachers’ conferences and is also organizing CI events in Lithuania: annual CI and Performance Mini-festival since 2007, regional CI teachers’ conference in March ’08, Vilnius CI and Performance Festival ‘09.
