“re-Source” – Christian Swenson & Friends play Human Jazz

A benefit for AS220 Youth Programs

This is not a dance performance, a sacred ritual or a play, nor a musical concert or a comedy show, yet it is in part all of these. It is also homage to the human medium and the spirit that connects us.

Join Christian & his friends as they co-create an evening of spontaneous performance.

“Human Jazz” is about playing the body, voice and imagination simultaneously; no set pieces, special costumes, recorded music, just humans playing. As a soloist Christian “disappears” into songs, animals, characters, body music, aliens, etc. The ensemble will play all together and in smaller groupings. The show will conclude with a participatory Balinese Kecak/Monkey Chant.

Ecstatic Singing Circle (on-going)

If you’d like to try singing improv with us, this is a very informal gathering of vocalists, singers, players, etc.  We like to play with tones, rhythms, spontaneous songs, gibberish, etc.  It happens first and third Saturday afternoons of each month with different facilitators.

Kate Thompson and I are also leading vocal playshop/jams Thursday afternoons 1-2:20pm in Seattle’s Central District.  Email me for details: human jazz at comcast.net
