La La La Human Voice
A workshop in voice and meditation for young people

Aaaaaah! Life starts with a cry. This 1st mark of existence expresses basic life force:  I am fully here, listen to me, look at me, play with me!
Ever since humans had vocal cords singing has always been an expression of this basic vitality, of wanting to communicate, to be heard, seen and to be in touch.

The Workshop:
In this workshop we will playfully explore some of the endless possibilities of our voices, verbally and non-verbally, as individuals and as a group.

We will be exploring various ways to warm up body& voice to create favorable conditions for improvisation with our body speech and mind.
The art of improvisation will be one of our main topics.
We will also explore the ancient tradition of circle songs.

Meditation Practice:
We will offer small sessions of sitting and walking meditation. The instructions on mindfulness and awareness are perfectly adaptable to any field of performance.
