FiLmprov

an ever-evolving experiment in the union of film, musical improvisation, poetry, and beyond . . . .

FILM + improvisation = FiLmprov

Kate Matson, filmmaker, creates a theatre of visual improvisation originating on Super 8 film by animating objects that have significance for her sculpturally, spiritually, and/or politically.

Mark Harvey, music director, assembles the collective and individual compositional talents of seasoned musical improvisers to interact with the choreography of these found and simple objects.
