*//About the workshop:*

The act of singing has been defined by our culture as an elitist act that
only few may do. Public singing has all but disappeared from daily life.
The institutionalization and corporatization of singing has lulled us into
accepting that most of us have no business doing it. Yet singing is one of
the most beneficial personal acts of expression and healing possible within
the human form.

This workshop will support newcomers as well as returning participants. You
will be introduced to physical explorations of sound and will begin the
process of reclaiming your voice as an instrument of expression. You will
leave this workshop with a framework for a practice that you can carry with
you and develop to suit your own impulses. This workshop will include
detailed descriptions and explorations of diaphragmatic breathing, vocal
function and health, resonant areas, vocal registers, and the relationship
of your voice to your body, your memory and your emotions.

This workshop involves movement. Come with clothes you can move in and
please bring water. Changing room provided.

in dance, theatre and public installation. Over the last 15 years, he has

achieve something, but to experience something. His teaching started to
take on a full bodied practice after working with choreographer luciana
achugar during the process of otro teatro, and has continued to evolve
while collaborating with Faye Driscoll, Chelsea Murphy and Magda San
Millan, and most recently as the creator of *Close Music for Bodies (2017
FringeArts Festival), *which used Personal Resonance as a generative
