Workshop “Voice as Body, Text and Music” by Irena Tomažin aka iT

In the framwork of The Bring In Take Out Living Archive Sarajevo, on Friday, 28.09.2012 12h-16h, a Ljubljana based sound artists, dancer and performer Irena Tomažin will hold a voice workshop: Voice as Body, Text and Music. 

Participants of this workshop will work on voice through the body – the body is an instrument of voice, the body resonates when we sing and the body carries the voice. Experimenting with voice can bring us to the different faces, stories that each voice has. On the other hand, taking the text and working with it as a composition, we can embody it and come to singing with it, or just speaking it to the space, sending it to space to resonate. By approaching it musically, we can come to different text interpretations.
The workshop is free of charge and it is open to all interested: students, actors, dancers, singers, musicians and all others interested in working with voice, its corporeality, musicality and textuality. There is a limited number of workshop participants. Dress code: comfortable clothes, in which one easy moves.
