“Lament” is a word that encompasses an expansive variety of physical and vocal expressions, including grief, complaint, rage, songs of sorrow, different forms of Celtic keening, the Blues, ancient Greek exclamations, and communal and solo expressions of them all. Our Deep Song workshop celebrates the variety of emotional and vocal colours expressed in joy and lamentation and provides a way for the performer to deepen personal connections to themselves, their passions, and the ability to express them artfully. We will work on songs, sounds, and styles from around the globe. The work will include breathing exercises, vocal training and extending range, physical and vocal preparation for the expressions of lamentation, a range of musical forms, ornaments, and utterances of grief and joy, from laughter to lament, group and solo improvisations, song and text interpretation, polyphonic singing, and individual work in small groups.
