Summary/Abstract: Music and dance improvisation is, first of all, a matter of communication, and online creation has to face different perspectives and challenges as well. Technically, dance is integration of sound, rhythm, space and movement. All these technical characteristics were restricted in online but, being receptive, together with TonArt Ensemble Hamburg, we discovered new improvisational and compositional approaches. The activities of the project Disdance took place every Monday evening between 15 of April and 15 of June 2020 on zoom platform. As artists, we wanted to continue to work in spite of all restrictions caused by Coronavirus pandemic lockdown. Involving in practical and digital actions of online meetings we became familiar throughout the project activities with a multitude of innovating techniques and procedures in terms of form and artistic language. This online music and dance improvisation project made me more confident in planning and online delivery of an art moment and it proved the limitation of communication and space is no longer a problem. Music and dance could create a new environment and new audiences.
