"MOVED BY VOICE"  In the workshop we will meet ourselves differently from how we know ourselves in everyday life through discovering many diverse voices that are kept in our body. We will go through the process of shifting the awareness towards inner listening and tuning in with our own emotional streams and body impulses. By listening closely we can get to know more deeply not only ourselves, but also our own voice material, expressions and songs already within us.

Focus in January: VOICE - BODY

In January's "moved by voice" workshop we'll be focusing on the relation between the voice and the body and their connection within and through the breath. Through awareness of our own physical postures and breathing patterns we'll be listening and tuning in with our everyday use of voice - only when we start to listen (to ourselves) the work on voice can start.
