The body is an instrument made mostly of mind and water.

What forms of "music" can one play with it?

Improvisation with the Body & Voice


"Ideally, I try to let the body and voice together discover the dancing. Each helping the other articulate my enthusiasm. The sensation is then a mixture of wonder and empathy in seeing oneself birthing an ever-changing landscape; a landscape of the Other, other peoples, species, and elements. In the safety of delight, I create worlds again and again with pulse, tonal and movement qualities akin to dancing, singing and acting for this is where we play and pretend. As a tribe of one I open this window for us to taste the ageless winds. "
- Christian Swenson, Creator of Human Jazz, the unique music/dance/drama form.
