SONG OF MYSELF: A MEMORY IN THE VOICE
© Federico Schwindt
in the memory and by the teachings of Peter Rose
"Song of Myself: a memory in the voice" is a three month workstream practice using Peter Rose's voice-body technique for the development of an organic, strong and flexible voice.
The introduction practice includes essential breathing and relaxation exercises for the body/vocal instrument and the classes get the students into contact with "the plastiques" a Grotowski based physical technique used as a mean to open the body/organism and create the conditions for vocal work with body resonance.
This first module will work with memories/stories provided by the participants as a springboard for impulses, inner associations and physical action engaging the voice. The arising material will be progressively moulded into the development of an individual, precisely-crafted action/voice sequence.
As the course progresses the students gain not only a bigger awareness on their voice capacities, but also increase their stage presence, improvisation and performance skills.
The class finishes with an open class presentation where people are invited to witness the practice of the participants using the skills and materials developed during the course.
