The core of this training is about experiencing the deep correlation between voice, body and breath, and how the voice affects the movement – and vice versa. We will take a journey through the different resonators of the body generating the voice and find out about the body parts initiating it. Another focus is set on the exploration of the tension between inside/outside, sound/silence, movement/stillness, own voice/environment, individual voice/common voice. This will help develop an awareness, which allows to stay tuned with the present moment, and a feeling for rhythm and dynamic between these two poles. The training is structured in a body and a voice warm up, rhythm and improvisation exercises, which will progressively awaken our body and voice presence.
