The Pillow Project Summer 2016 Postjazz Improvisational Study says
An immersion program for individuals who are interested in intensely studying the Postjazz method of motion via a small, personalized program for deep artistic investigation, psychological introspection and idea-challenging concepts.

Postjazz is an organic method of 'physicalizing music' as a jazz musician 'plays the moment', asking us to be fully non-fictional of how we move, where we are at, the circumstances we are in, and who we are.

The philosophy of Postjazz reveals our individual instincts, intentions, awareness, weaknesses and strengths through our musical choices. There is no importance or significance to embodying any physical particular technique or employing any traditional vocabulary of learned sequencing, postures and shapes. Instead, we ask to simply identify with and clarify our natural disposition within the music and further influence the sound through the motion we play.

This 8-day study program in Postjazz is directed by collaborative partners Pearlann Porter and John Lambert and the resident artists at The Space Upstairs.

...Let go of old restrictions, to collaborate with new artists, learn to actively observe, openly communicate with one another, tear down walls and take risks together as performers, as visual musicians, and as expressive composers of this time...
