Stephen Nachmanovitch , performer, author and workshop leader who emphasizes improvisation and creativity in “life and the arts” will provide a presentation and workshops for students, workshop for fine arts teachers, and a public performance.
Author of the book Free Play: Improvisation in Life and Art, improvisational violinist Nachmanovitch has dedicated his life to fostering the creative spirit within us all. Central to his beliefs is the importance of play. He has traveled world-wide lecturing on creativity and the spiritual underpinnings of art. He has presented master classes and workshops at many conservatories and universities, and has had numerous appearances on radio, television, and at music and theater festivals. Collaborating with other artists in media including music, dance, theater, and film, Stephen has developed programs melding art, music, literature, and computer technology. He is a pioneer in free improvisation on the violin, viola and electric violin and has developed software including The World Music Menu and Visual Music Tone Painter. While music has been his major artistic form, his work inspires the artists of any genre. More information about Nachmanovitch and his work can be found at freeplay
