Body/Voice with Leela Alaniz

Workshop: Body/Voice – the embodiment of passions and thoughts

Starting from the principle that the voice is a vital phenomenon and that it does not occur only in the vocal cords, one realizes the importance of engaging the whole body and bodily vitality for the production of sound.

The spoken words, in turn, require intellectual attention, understanding the meaning of what is being said, as well as a connection with the imagination which must be constantly sparkling.

A third element must also be related to speech, the quality of emotions, which obviously are not separated from the body, on the contrary, they give shape, energy and body rhythms.

This workshop aims, through a series of exercises/investigations, to work on the relationship between the body and the voice, the multiple vocal qualities linked to the sensations, emotions and images produced by the imagination and therefore embodied/vocalized.

Practical course:

* Exercises derived from Grotowskian Organic Lineage techniques and developed by Leela Alaniz over the past 25 years of research and practice.
