The voice is a physical instrument engaging with all of our senses. Moving the breath, feeling the vibration of the sound as a living pulse guiding, informing, and exchanging actively with our movement flow opens gateways of inspiration and creativity. This workshop is an integrative process combining Active Breath, movement flow, deep body resonance, and ensemble voice/movement improvisation.
Time & Location
Sat 31 October & Sun 1 November
VMI Center, Amsterdam
10:00 – 17:00
We are following all of the regulations for Covid – 19 to offer a safe and clean environment for a small group to join this in-person workshop.
VMI Somatic Practice combines vocal expression with physical movement to deepen awareness and awaken perception in ways that foster personal change and empower transformation. Developing our body presence through actively using breath and movement informs our sense of awareness in how and what we want to communicate.
Each workshop in the series focuses on different aspects of VMI Somatic Practice that incorporate principles of Active Breath, embodied anatomy, sensory awareness, movement in space, hands-on bodywork, and guided physical re-patterning. Improvisation structures are introduced, combining vocal, physical, visual, temporal, and rhythmic elements to amplify creativity in an ensemble experience.
The two-day workshops awaken a fuller expression of voice through the entire body and stimulate fresh approaches to performance. The practice is effective in developing in the participant an engaged and concentrated whole-body experience of their breath and voice combined with active movement.
The workshops are for anyone interested in improving their health and vitality while becoming more confident in embodying their voice, enhancing their physical and emotional awareness, and creatively feeling a sense of aliveness in a moving and flowing body.
They are of particular interest for movement practitioners, bodyworkers, educators, therapists, dancers, singers, actors, coaches, facilitators, and public speakers.
