Workshop descriptions:

The Song of Joy, workshop with Parvathy Baul

Baul is mainly an Indian oral tradition, intrinsically connected to the practice of Yogis, Sufis and Mystics. Each Baul guru has a different way of passing on her knowledge to a pupil. It is more like a transfer of knowledge, different from conventional teaching. In the workshop Parvathy Baul will guide the participants in basic elements of Baul singing through breathing exercises, dance steps, body positions and the learning of melodies and Bengali poetry.


The Echo of Silence, workshop with Julia Varley

The workshop deals with the unity of the physical and vocal impulse, the connection between the singing and speaking voice, and the relationship between text and action. The participants will work individually and in chorus to achieve the characteristic generosity of the voice at the moment when it is offered to the surrounding space.


Life of the Voice - Voice of Life, workshop with Katrine Faber

Katrine will invite the participants of the workshop into an exploration of the landscape of each voice in search of new colours, expressions and possibilities. Participants will work on the breath, body, energy, support and opening and relaxation of the voice. The exploration aims at unfolding the possibilities of the voice in a playful and trustful way through movements, songs, improvisations and small creations. All kinds of voices are welcome.


Singing together, workshop with Brigitte Cirla

Our culture has lost a strong and direct relationship to singing and specially to singing together. The main goal of the workshop is to discover and develop one's voice through the practice of a cappella choir, working with collective and individual vocal and breathing techniques, aiming for a better conscience of the body and a flexible, extensive and free voice.

Exercises include vocal warm-up and exploration of vocal emission and resonators, and popular songs a cappella for equal or mixed voices depending on the participants.
