In this presentation I offer the perspective that solo performance improvisation is both a questioning of and response to the multi-layered circumstances of the immediate performance. The inquiry into what is present - physically and imaginatively investigating its possibilities - involves understandings of 'seeing' (taking on both literal and figurative connotations); the dynamic of 'being seen' by the audience and considerations of connections between what is visible, the act of making visible and the role of an invisible in performance.
