“From the beginning, I have only danced my life.” Isadora Duncan
Our voice, too, is sensitive to context. It also has things to express, to sing, whisper, scream. This workshop arises from the need to let our voices express themselves with all their possibilities and limits; with all their dreams and desires… today. Through the expressive conjunction of voice and movement and a work that mixes technique and imagination we invite our voice to embody a vocal dance. Isadora Duncan used to say “to dance is to express one’s inner life”. The voice also offers us this possibility, a space of research to find our vocal personality and the public intimacy of our voice.

We will work in particular on three axes, exploring the links between:
– The body and the voice.
– Musicality, singing and vocal improvisation.
– Voice and speech.
The workshop will consist of physical warm-ups, a strong emphasis on individual and collective vocal exploration, and text work.

Each participant must bring one a cappella song.
Bring your water bottle, mask, if possible, different comfortable clothes to work in the space.

– Bailar su voz –
“Desde el principio, lo único que he hecho es bailar mi vida.” Isadora Duncan
Nuestra voz también es sensible al contexto. También tiene cosas que expresar, cantar, susurrar, gritar. Este taller surge de la necesidad de dejar que nuestras voces se expresen con todas sus posibilidades y límites; con todos sus sueños y deseos. A través de la conjunción expresiva voz/movimiento y un trabajo que mezcla la técnica e imaginación, invitamos a nuestra voz a habitar nuestro cuerpo para encarnar una danza vocal. Isadora Duncan solía decir que “bailar es expresar nuestra vida interior ». La voz también nos ofrece esta posibilidad, un espacio de búsqueda para encontrar nuestra personalidad vocal y la intimidad pública de nuestra voz.

Trabajaremos en particular en tres ejes, explorando los vínculos entre:
– El cuerpo y la voz.
– Musicalidad, canto e improvisación vocal.
– La voz y la palabra.
El taller consistirá en calentamientos corporales, un fuerte énfasis en la exploración vocal individual y colectiva, y el trabajo con canciones y textos.

Para los participantes:
– Cada participante debe traer una canción a cappella.
– Trae tu botella de agua, mascarilla, si es posible, diferentes ropas cómodas para trabajar en el espacio.
