Sleepily, from the comfort of his own home, Charles Adrian brings you this week’s Page One – the 27th Second-Hand Book Factory – with dancer, choreographer, teacher, improviser, performer and artistic director Gabriele Wappel. They ask questions, revisit a classic and explore Renaissance Italy. Gabriela, directly and indirectly, supplied all of the music for this week’s show and it is wonderful.
The workshop they were doing on the weekend of recording was led by John Britton, who, among other things, is a brilliant and inspiring teacher of ensemble improvisation. His company is called Duende.
