FROM ABROAD WORKSHOP: The Voice That Touches Also Has a Skin with Veza Fernandez
The Voice That Touches Also Has a Skin
With Veza Fernandez (Austria/ Spain)
From 31 May, Dancehouse will host visiting Spanish-Austrian artist Veza Fernandez in residence before they travel to Dark MOFO.
As part of Dancehouse’s From Abroad Workshops, Veza will host a workshop exploring voice.
In this workshop we explore the sensuous voice as a listening organ. A bodily voice that moves beyond the mouth and the throat to connect and make sense of different resonant surfaces like walls, floors and body parts. Through a series of vocal and physical visualising exercises, I will teach how to create sonic spaces between the insides of our bodies and the space around and between us. This will allow us to train a listening through sounding in which the voice gets shaped through what it encounters and imagines. The sensuous voice is the ultimate manifestation of corporeality, pouring the visceral into manifestation. Be ready to feel the voice shaping and exiting your body in never ending screams, moans, sighs. To not know who is sounding you and to feel the power that the voice releases.
