Physical Voice in the Moving Body – The workshop awakens a fuller expression of voice through the entire body and stimulates fresh approaches to performance.
VOICE MOVEMENT INTEGRATION & EXPRESSION returns to Roccatederighi in July, 2014
Voice Movement Integration (VMI Practice) combines voice with movement to stimulate and organize the body's physical, perceptual and emotional awareness.
This workshop centers on training that develops skills connecting voice, movement, physical repatterning and improvisation. These approaches are complementary and use physical awareness and movement as a source for understanding the voice as a whole body experience. These skills are then applied to Vocal Dance and improvisation to enliven and broaden the creative process.
This workshop is of particular interest to actors, singers, dancers, public speakers and anyone interested in enhancing their use of voice.
Classes are taught in English (with an Italian translation) from 10:00 - 16:00 daily.
REGISTRATION: Payment must be made in full to register. Fill out the application form on this page or write an email to: email@example.com
Roccatederighi is a medieval village set in beautiful rural Tuscany, an hour from Siena and near the sea. The timeless beauty of the area, rich in Etruscan & Renaissance art, creates an atmosphere that inspires creative exploration and the widening of our imagination. By direct contact with nature & welcoming people habits brought from city living slowly melt away.
The spacious, airy workshop studio is located in the heart of this lively and friendly village. It overlooks a lush Mediterranean landscape full of vineyards, olive groves, chestnut forests and picturesque farmland.
Just outside the studio door you can enjoy a morning cappuccino on a sunny terrace or dinner at one of the town’s family-run restaurants. After class you can walk through forests or relax enjoying breathtaking views of the Maremma region that stretches to the sea.
Over twenty years, Bardi’s Rocca Project has drawn performers, educators and therapists from around the world.
