CONFERENCE TO EXPLORE SIGNIFICANCE OF IMPROVISATION
Improvisation is not only central to music and art, in a world where the only constant is change, it has become a necessary tool to deal with society's
daily uncertainties. As rules, guidelines and planning become increasingly obsolete, qualities such as spontaneity, inventiveness and creativity become
important to our lives.
A two-day conference will explore "Improvisation in the Arts and Everyday Life." Hosted by the Department of German, Russian and East Asian Languages
(GREAL), the symposium will be held April 10-11 at BGSU and downtown Bowling Green's Clazel Theatre, 129 N. Main St. Throughout the event, experts on
improvisation from various fields will address recent advances in the understanding of improvisation, its history and cultural significance, and its
relevance in today's society through performances, dialogues and seminars.
