Moving Image Atelier

On using the voice as a tool

13 June 2019, Netwerk Aalst, Aalst

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 guides 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 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 challenges and develops their own possibilities of sound vocalization, learning from the voice within themselves.
