Listening and responding, following and counteracting, creating in the moment: that’s what music improvisation is all about. SPACE ACADEMY is a series of masterclasses by world-renowned improv musicians and performers. In an afternoon talk and workshop they share their vision on music and improvising and make music with the participants. After dinner there will be a concert by the lecturer and a jam. Both the afternoon masterclass and the evening concerts are for musicians and non-playing visitors.

We are very happy that Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti will be giving the masterclass on Saturday, April, 29.

Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti is a multi-talented “total” artist, her performances surprise without exception. Her creative ability covers the distance from her native country (Bolivia) to her current home (Amsterdam).


“In this masterclass Ibelisse will explore the use of different materials as a starting point, as sources of image, sound, performativity and spatial awareness.

Each participant may bring a self-chosen material that can be played as an extension of the body or as an object.
For example: wood, metal, stones, etc. (Quantity also determined by yourself).
We will get to know, listen to and play from and with the materials inherent qualities. Investigate the relationship between the material and our body.
We will notice how our presence, gaze, direction and breath offers a very broad spectrum of possibilities, as an extension of our listening,
in order for performativity and movement  to unfold in a natural and practical way.

We will make études in which spatial thinking and its narrative power can be incorporated, together with the sound and embodied composition.”
