The Sounding Body: Voice as Movement
150 First Ave New York, NY 10009
- $65 per three-week series
- $30 single class drop-in
- LOCATION UPDATE: This workshop will take place at Movement Research, 122 Community Center, 150 First Ave
- Participants should bring shoes that they feel comfortable moving in.
This workshop is intended for anyone interested in exploring or using the voice as a practice and/or in performance. Each session includes a physical warm-up, tuning in to 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 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), as well as from my background in theater and opera will be incorporated.
The workshop is open to all levels, drop-ins are welcome and each session will have a slightly different focus that is progressive over the course of our time together.
Register for the full 9-week series! September 19 - November 21 with Peter Sciscioli, Marisa Michelson, and mayfield brooks for $180. Click the Register button above.
