The Northern Theatre Laboratory present: The Moving Voice Laboratory.
This workshop is a space for performers, dancers and actors to explore movement, voice and text, and the synergy between these elements.
This session will focus on the investigation of participants’ individual movement and voice qualities, and the ways these speak to and meld with one other. Zoe Katsilerou will provide practical skills and knowledge on voice production and the mechanics of movement. Drawing on her training in dance, somatic practices, acting, singing, music and improvisation, she will lead participants through gentle exercises setting the ground for individual research. We will explore ways of using memory and imagination as tools for creating movement and vocal scores (including sound and language). Looking at concepts of trust, moving with necessity, instinct, speed, fragility, softness and tension, we will look to develop physical rigour and creativity.
During the session, participants will:
- Develop understanding of vocal techniques for placement, articulation and sonority
- Explore approaches to using text as a stimulus for creating physical material
- Train physical and vocal improvisation, and the collaboration of these two elements
This workshop is open to all artists regardless of ‘experience’ or ‘ability’.
