Upcoming: Free Your Body, Free Your Voice

21 & 22 July 2018

In this two-day workshop, explore the relationship between your body and your voice. By engaging different resonators in the body using vocal improvisation, international folk songs, text and rhythm, you will discover a holistic instrument as a performer - the body and voice as one. 

 

We are often taught song and spoken word are separate practices. Seemia’s workshop will give a greater understanding of how they use the same tools.

 

Acclaimed international ensemble, Seemia Theatre, fuse physical theatre, world music and storytelling to create socially-engaged ensemble theatre and integrated performer training. 

 

Learn how they cast a spell with words and discover the importance of listening to your instrument to give you greater presence as a performer.
