Bodywork – Movement & Voice, Improvisation, Theater & Textwork, Vocal Exploration
The aim of this workshop is to develop the ways in which vocal awareness and dramatic expression can inform each other. Kate and Margaret will teach in tandem starting each day with a physical and vocal warm-up in which Margaret will focus on developing awareness of the dynamic physical roots of vocal expression and their connection with our imaginations. This will be followed by solo, duet and small group improvisations and then a session centering on vocal work which arises from these improvs. including short individual guidance. At other times we will start with vocal improvising and then explore movement and mood to fill out the different characters which emerge.
Exploring our voices can be a doorway to words and language. We will discover how both connecting with the sources from which we produce vocal sound and listening to the qualities and musicality of our voices, can generate narrative content.
