9 - 23 Septembre 2014The Creative Voice International Seminar (Full)Kaya ANDERSON, Albino BIGNAMINI*, Anne HEEG et Saso VOLLMAIER *register

Directed by Kaya ANDERSON, Albino BIGNAMINI*, Anne HEEG & Saso VOLLMAIER* (pianist)

Price : 1050 € (teaching and lodging but no food)

We will work on the voice in characters and scenes, both humourous and dramatic, from Euripide ‘The Bacchae’ and other authors, in song, arias, poetry, stories and language. Please bring a chosen song and text learned by heart. The lessons include exercises and explorations of the voice, body, and breathing. These are based on the experience of many years of research, teaching, performing and directing in the Roy Hart Theatre and on techniques found in Yoga, Tai Chi, Chi Gong and other vocal and physical disciplines that aim to increase your capacity to achieve relaxation and tonicity, which are vital elements in singing, speaking, and reciting. The work includes individual and group lessons, improvisations with encouragement to develop these towards interpretation or to simply continue exploring. We will also do ensemble work on extracts from a play by Shakespeare and sing polyphonic songs of different countries. In addition there will be evenings of singing and presentation of work in progress, listening to audio/visual recordings and discussion of relevant experiences. This workshop is for you if you wish to improve and discover a wider range and more expressive voice in speaking and singing which you can use to enhance your all-round capacity to communicate and enjoy transforming and regenerating your voice, mind, and body.
