This workshop is for the physically attuned, sonically curious artist from any creative background. My practice has emerged over the past decade in response to disconnects in my own body, mind and heart. Influenced by Emilie Conrad’s philosophical writing on paralysis and fluid resonance, this workshop aims to integrate the voice into your physical practice through sonic vibration. We'll regard each body as its own expert, making room for doubt and interrogation along the way. With the breath at the center of physical practice we will work both alone and with touch from a partner to investigate how vibration moves through our muscles, fascia, bones and ligaments. How can this sensation orchestrate our bodies for a richer experience? We will harness this physical sounding within relational scores and practice being together. The research I will share has been influenced by the work and practices of Jonathan Hart Makwaia, Nancy Stark Smith, Daria Faïn, Jennifer Monson, Urban Bush Women, Emily Johnson, and many others. No experience with the voice is required.
