Workshop: From the Voice to the Word through Sound
Dates: 21-26 September 2021
Content: This workshop opens pathways to embodying text and finding the journey from sound to word through musicality and listening.

Workshop: Sensory journey in the word SENS-A-BILITY
Music and musicality in A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Content: A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a radiant, poetic and extremely realistic work. It is a duet between reality and dream, with a touch of magic. We propose a path in which the word is explored through all our sensory channels, so that it reveals its meanings and helps us to grasp the truth as deeply as possible. Through the dialogues of the lovers we will enter into the depth of human feelings, investigating the movements of Love and the dance of Hate, the shadow side of Love. The final destination of the journey is the Invisible, that which is pure energy, vibration, force of nature, vital spirit.  The cello will be accompanying and guiding us in our journey, with its vibrations, sounds, music and improvisation.
