IMPROVISED VOICE WORKSHOPS with Steve Boyland
LIC STUDIO, BLUECOAT, Liverpool
WORKSHOP DATES; Six weekly sessions 6-8.00pm on successive MONDAYS starting 22nd Jan - 26th Feb
HARVESTING ECHOES is a series of SIX WORKSHOPS exploring the expressive and compositional possibilities of improvised voice. Devised and led by performer/voice teacher STEVE BOYLAND, these sessions will aim to develop a vocabulary of dynamic, embodied voice which both incorporates and extends beyond the parameters of conventional singing and speech. They will also seek to fix these elements within the context of various approaches to SPONTANEOUS COMPOSITION. Although geared towards practitioners and students of improvised performance, these workshops are also SUITABLE for NON-SPECIALISTS interested in exploring their own creativity through the powerfully expressive medium of voice.
