This workshop is intended for anyone interested in exploring or using the voice as a practice and/or in performance. For this one-time offering, we’ll tune into how we breathe and how breath can move through the body, as a starting point for making any sound. From there, various exercises for accessing resonance, volume, range and articulation will be shared. We will explore how the extension of movement into sound and vibration can alter our perception and activate space differently than movement alone. Further, we will experience a dialogue between spoken language and movement, and between dancing and singing. Finally, we will discover how this interplay can expand the variety of choices that are available, allowing for a fuller means of expression through the body.

This practice is informed by years of study in music, movement and energy work, in particular. Exercises and approach gleaned from working with Meredith Monk & Vocal Ensemble (extended vocal techniques), Jane Comfort (text and movement) and Daria Faïn (qi-gong and locating sound within the body), as well as from my background in theater and opera will be incorporated. The workshop is open to all levels of experience.
