MORE DETAILS:

EARLY BIRD BONUS CLASS: The underlying principal of Katie Bull's Anatomy of a Vocal Practice is that we want to gain higher levels of functionally integrated performance and to undo what Feldenkrais once called “parasitic” habits; in this way we actualize our fully expressive range and healthy ease in vibrant singing.

Through Tal Jakubowiczova's UK based company, Theatre Gym, she provides acting courses for adults who are interested in exploring their creativity through playing and acting. In this session, you will get to work with the other group members, using your imagination, creating and performing together. It is a safe and supportive space and no acting experience is needed. Only your willingness to play, create and be silly together.

Susanna Hood's approach is influenced by a mix of methods (including Open Source Forms, Emotionally Integrated Voice, Continuum Movement and Action Theatre.) We will warm and nurture support through our full physical self– flesh, bones and guts; voice; emotion and imagination – attuning to ourselves by diving into sensation, bringing awareness to and letting go of unnecessary tensions so as to access greater freedom and play.

In Aria's workshop, Movement practices, we will use imaginative ways to generate movement that connects us to our identity and environment.

Musician Sofia Rei will introduce ways in which we can embody rhythmic approaches as musicians. Check out her video below to see how she does it!

Akim Funk Buddha is a multi-cultural dancer, vocalist, fashion designer and hip-hop artist. He will take us on a Halloween inspired sounding and movment adventure to close this exploratory, playful series.
