Directed by Maryline GUITTON et Véronique THOMAS

Véronique and Maryline invite you to approach vocal improvisation as a path to self-knowledge, leading to a deeper, more authentic relationship with yourself, with others, and with the world. Singers and improvisers both, they will accompany you as you allow your inner music to express itself through improvised singing. They will give you tools to help with spontaneous composition – be it physical, vocal, or musical – through intuitive listening, use of rhythm, intention, imaginary characters, relation to silence, contrasts, etc. Notions like melody, unison, counterpoint, and grammelot (gibberish) will be addressed. Musical inspiration will reveal itself as you open up to your breath, to your emotions and sensory perceptions, and to the images and stories of your imagination. Alternating periods of in-depth research and playful games will lead you to explore the extended registers, spaces of resonance, and the various textures of your voice, to nurture your imagination. In this space of artistic freedom, as we develop our listening, deepen our presence, and savour the pleasure of sounds – mindful in the moment of what wants or needs to be said or sung – we will share our aliveness in the present moment and give expression to our limitless vocal potential. The workshop will include physical and vocal warm-ups, individual and group lessons, vocal exploration, meditations, and improvisations. Musical instruments are welcome!

Schedule : Tuesday to Saturday : 9h-12h30/14h30-17h30/Sunday : 9h-12h30
