Impropolis – Solo

In my solo set Impropolis, I alternate bass clarinet improvisations with brief narrations related to my research topic: improvisation and politics. The following themes will be discussed: Martin Luther King Jr.’s improvised speech, Emperor Joseph II’s ban on improvisation in 1770, the Italian improvvisatori and improvvisatrici, and improvised versus writing-based speech in Athenian democracy.
