Workshop Description

This workshop is intended for anyone interested in exploring or using the voice as a practice and/or in performance. I’ll invite us to begin each session with a movement warm-up, tuning in to how we breathe and how breath can move through the body as an opener, an expressive tool, and as a starting point for making any sound. From there, I’ll guide us through a practice of moving vocal/physical vibration into different parts of our bodies to discover and open resonance in some of its myriad forms. Shaping and sculpting our breath and sound with the throat/tongue/teeth/lips, we’ll look to access greater ease in speaking with our whole bodies. We’ll also approach singing while moving as a way to expand resonance. My aspiration is to uncover the benefits of this practice in and of itself, and as a potentially potent tool for expressing ourselves more fully in the world.

Voice as Movement is informed by years of study and engagement in voice, music, movement and energy work, framed by my early training in Western European classical violin and opera, sports and American Musical Theater, and later in contemporary dance, global theater traditions, Experimental Vocal Techniques, and Qi-gong. Exercises and approaches 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) will also be referenced and incorporated.
