Improvisation Workshops
at Jesuits Culture Center in Alexandria

With an Artist grant from Mophradat, Huda Asfour’s current research is focused on improvisational skills and gestures within Eastern music aesthetics. Her work within this project in Egypt started with AlDarb AlAhmar Arts School and continued with a two-phase workshop at Jesuits Culture Center. The training centres on deep listening, trust-building, and safe communication as essential skills for improvising. The teaching of this workshop builds upon using gestures to communicate with a group of improvisers, also known as conduction.
