Moving Image Atelier (MIA)

On using the voice as a tool (13.06.2019)

13 June 2019, Netwerk Aalst, Aalst

Location: Netwerk Aalst
Date: 13 June 2019 (9am-17.30pm)
Speakers: Sonia Pastecchia
Limited places available, registration is required. Email to info@elephy.org

Coinciding with the exhibition of Imogen Stidworthy, who uses the voice in her work as a sculptural and spatial medium, elephy organizes a 1-day workshop called ‘Inner Voice’ with the filmmaker and voice coach Sonia Pastecchia as part of their Moving Image Atelier (MIA) series.

Pastecchia will guide participants on a journey to discover their inner voices as a tool to use in their artistic practice, in activism, and in their daily lives. Together, participants will explore where the voice originates, how to breath, how to deliver dramatic or personal texts, speeches or sounds, and how to feel comfortable when using their voice, projecting it into space. Beginning with exercises that guide us to open the vocal chords, every participant can then shape their own journey to suit their own motivation, their own intention to utilize their voice. Each participant will challenge and develop their own possibilities of sound vocalization, learning from the voice within themselves.
