The Sounding Body: Voice As Movement with Peter Sciscioli
Voice as Movement uses an anatomical approach to the sounding body and explores movement and vocalizing as a means to expand perception and to activate space differently than movement alone. We will discover how this interplay can expand the variety of choices available to performers, allowing for a fuller means of articulation and expression through the body.
