Voice and text channels the voice and soma approach towards the exploration and expression of text. By rooting this work in a body that is itself resonant with the building blocks of sound, participants learn to approach text in a non-prescriptive manner.
Informed by the opening effect of somatic awareness and exploration of sound, texts are introduced “drop by drop”, word by word, gradually building up a mesh of images, sound qualities and actions.
These give flesh to the written word and deliver it towards an authentic oral presence. By inviting particpants to share their textual research in partner and ensemble settings, surprising and sometimes insightful interpretation emerges. Texts included range from solo pieces to duologues and ensemble chorus.
