As a part of Indexical's Micro-Residency Program, Kumi Maxson is facilitating weekly collective improvisation workshop spaces, every Monday* from March 27 to May 29 from 6-8pm. The workshops will consist of a short reading and listening session, followed by discussions of the liberatory political implications of musical improvisation. The workshops will cater to all levels of improvisational and musical experience (including none!), striving to create an accessible space for non-hierarchical participation and experimentation. Musicians are encouraged to bring their own instruments, however some will be provided for those who do not have their own.

From May 22 to June 1, Indexical’s space will be transformed into a site for ongoing collective music-making, community, and creativity. Two final evenings of long-form improvisations for an audience will be held on June 2 and 3, open to participation from any past workshop participants.

Masks are required for these workshops. Wind players and vocalists may perform without masks if needed.
*There will be no workshop on April 10 while an installation is being set up in the space. April 24 will be a POC only space, May 8 will be a women/trans/gnc space, and May 22 will be a QTPOC only space.

Cost: sliding scale $0-10
