LEIMAY LUDUS Lab: Voice as Movement with Guest Teacher Peter Sciscioli

LEIMAY Ludus Lab: Voice as Movement with Guest Teacher Peter Sciscioli
This lab is intended for anyone interested in exploring or using voice as a practice and/or in performance. For the first session, we’ll use an anatomy-based approach to increasing awareness of the breath, accessing many dimensions of sound production, and working into speaking and singing. For the second session, we’ll apply some of these fundamentals to more exploratory work, illuminating several particular voice/body connections and dialogues. Overall, we will discover how exploring the voice as movement can expand the variety of choices that are available, connect us to our unique vocal power, and allow for a fuller means of expression through the body.
Date: Thursday April 6 and Friday April, 7
Time: 7pm – 10pm
PRICE: $72
