The current session format is:
A series of small group improvisations. Duration 5 -10 minutes each.
There is some conversation & discussion between the pieces.
There is a social break of 15 minutes at the midway point.
Currently, there are no workshop type strategies or games, scores or contemporary compositions. The musicians play free improvisation in music in their own time.
The future design and content of the Jigsaw events will be shaped by those who are involved, attend the sessions and share their feedback.
