LEIMAY LUDUS Lab: Voice as Movement II led by Peter Sciscioli


LEIMAY LUDUS Lab: Voice as Movement II lead by guest resident teacher Peter Sciscioli

This lab is intended for anyone interested in a more intermediate/advanced approach to a method of working with the voice and body as an integrated whole, using imagery and embodied exercises to work with movement, breath and sound, singing and speech. Some previous experience is useful, either from a theater or music perspective or through prior classes/workshops with Sciscioli. We will continue to discover how exploring the voice as movement can expand the variety of choices that are available to performers, connect us to our unique vocal power, and allow for a fuller means of expression through the body.
