Uncovering the social roots of speaking to empower our innate dissonance and expand how we are voicing out and resonates from our collective and individual body for social transformation.I want to invite participants to initiate and innovate from their own embodiment to practice listening and expanding their capacity for receiving and acknowledging where sounding apart, resoancne and disosnant tones arises in the body and explore with them.
Each session will be spent within 40 minutes’ exploration of specific aspects of the anatomy of body sounds. (vibration, breathing, resonance through body cavities and body systems) followed by 35 minutes of guided practice for witnessing and being witness through improvisation with movement, voice and imagination. Noticing how our sense of self care and our capacity to stay present with our discoveries support our ability to expand our curiosity. Following pleasure and learning for ourselves what serves us by creating the right container in the movement of moment by moment.
Using yielding, pushing and reaching patterns we will ground and invaginate our integrity, authenticity, creativity, playfulness and depth to find the voice of our multiple bodies.
A series of workshops to approach our vocal organs as a social tool for change. By allowing ourselves to be dissonant, to reopen our hearing, listening to unknown paths of sounding and inquiring about how the body produces sounds and how we create meaning-making.
