Each two hour workshop starts with connecting our focused attention to our breath and bodies. We warm our vocal chords using gentle repetition of constants, vowels, and classic vocal exercises. We use imagery and release techniques from the Butoh world to loosen our everyday body and open more playful ways.
Through games and simple improvisational structures, we practice listening to one another, exploring vocal improvisation and playfully passing sound and movement.
No previous experience necessary.
