Carreras Tiri

Improvisation is a journey into the unknown through unmarked paths, where the music is our only guide and where the field of possibilities is limitless. This infinite space of freedom that it offers us is a source of creativity and intense joy. Sometimes the path can be full of pitfalls but there is always a way out and it is there that the improbable can happen! When we leave behind all preconceived notions and prejudices, and are sensitive to the present moment with attention and generosity, the encounter with the other and with ourselves becomes possible and reveals unsuspected spaces. We only find what we are not looking for and improvisation thus leads to surprise ourselves as much as the other. It is this journey towards the unheard of that fascinates me and to which I invite you in all simplicity.
