FROM TRADITION THROUGH TO INNOVATION

Improvisation could also be seen as a way of trying to understand and interpret movement around us, in a similar way that I believe some of the stories that my grandmother told me though in the tradition, they were not entirely based on what she had experienced but rather pieces of improvisation that were derived from her intuition and her willingness to understand the world that surrounded her.

At times during her storytelling there were moments when she would also surprised by the direction at which some her stories would go, such a healthy feeling for any improviser.
