World Improvised Verse Singing Meeting

 Proceedings

DATE: 3rd of NOVEMBER 2003

Academic act.  Time: 9:30 - 14:00. Place: Miramar Palace (Donostia)
Topic: PANORAMIC OF ORALITY. There are more than one expositions of orality and oral improvisation is just one of them. The objective of the first conjunct of matters we will be discusing about would be to determine the object to be studied, what other type of expositions and genders go with it, similarities of the object to be studied with the rest, differences, etc. Besides, it will also be considered the present state of the theoretical mark to, completelly, understand orality.

Festival. Time: 19:30. Place: Lugaritz Culture House (Donostia)

DATE: 4th of NOVEMBRE 2003

Academic act. Time: 9:30 - 14:00. Place: Miramar Palace (Donostia)
Topic: PERFORMANCY:ANTHROPOLOGY OF ORALITY. Oral improvisation is born and got by the public at a determined place and moment (at a concrete space-time). It also generates texts but the characteristics inhered to space-time where creation takes place are as important as texts. This also happens to other oral genders when they are not improvisated, but not at the same grade as when the act is improvisated. Performancy is the concept experts of diverse areas of investigation use to study those, not textual, aspects of oral creation which, at the same time, is the main object to be studied at this act: Generally performancy and particularly, the characteristics of improvisated performancy.

Festival. Time: 19:30. Place: Lugaritz Culture House (Donostia)

DATE: 5th of NOVEMBRE 2003

Academic act.  Time: 9:30 - 14:00. Place: Miramar Palace (Donostia)
Topic: INTERNAL DYNAMIC OF THE SUNG IMPROVISATION. Improvisation takes place in different situations, not only in orality: Music, dance, plays,etc. On the other hand, there are grades of oral improvisation, as we do not, always, suddenly create a whole piece. As the object to be studied is this last improvisation, we will be analyzing the strategies of the oral improviser at this act: Recourses and limits that sudden creations have got, mental processes that start working and the way improvisation is used. It will also be considered the importance of the capacity to improvise in our society.

Festival. Time: 19:30. Place: Lugaritz Culture House (Donostia)

DATE: 6th of NOVEMBRE 2003

Academic act.  Time: 9:30 - 14:00. Place: Miramar Palace (Donostia)
Topic: THE PRESENTATION OF CONCRETE EXPERIENCES. This act will take and present everyone´s improvisated oral experiences. What we would like here is to standardize the presentation, cataloguing and analysis of this kind of phenomenons, informing about unknown experiences and digging deep on the knowledge of the well-known ones. Namely, however its grade is, information must refer to different concret aspects: The level of the texts it creates, its social relevance around where it is developed, the social movement it is created around it, etc.

Festival. Time: 19:30. Place: Lugaritz Culture House (Donostia)


DATE: 7th of NOVEMBRE 2003

Academic act.  Time: 9:30 - 14:00. Place: Miramar Palace (Donostia)
Topic: THE FUTURE OF ORAL IMPROVISATION. Obviously, future will be taken in account at the previous acts but at this one, the main objective will be to foresee the risks and oportunities of improvisation in the future: The place and functions oral improvisation should play on the new media sources, initiatives to foment oral improvisation, what oral improvisation can offer to the education system, the way to guarantee the knowledge about each other and the coordination of the world-wide reality, etc. Finally, from the theory´s point of view, we would like to give the first steps to configurate a theoretical mark that could integrate different contributions effectuated from different areas of investigation, when possible.
