Weberako aurkezpena
The cultural association Bertsozale Elkartea, with the collaboration of the Audiovisual Communication and Marketing Department of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), the Basque Government, the County Councils of Gipuzkoa and of Biscay and the BBK, has organized Intercultural Meetings about Oral Improvisation in the World that will take place in Donostia-San Sebastian in November 2003. The Meetings are centred on singing oral improvisation and they will have two dimensions. On the one hand, a varied sample of singing improvisation as it is developed in several continents and languages will be offered. On the other hand, there will be an attempt to move further in the analysis of oral improvisation in general and of the singing one in particular, seeking to develop a theoretical framework which will facilitate the understanding of this phenomenon, the possibilities of its survival within our societies and the contribution that oral improvisation could make to these.

The key points to be developed are the following:

1.- Overall view of orality in present societies. Genres and modalities.
2.- Anthropology of orality. Oral performance.
3.- Internal mechanisms of singing oral improvisation. Limits and strategies.
4.- Presentation of oral improvisation experiences in the world.
5.- The future of improvisation. Project proposals.
