Our bodies, Our voices is a class where the voice will meet the body and the body will meet the voice in no hierarchy. Inspired by Linklater and Roy Hart vocal techniques and improvisational and choreographic movement prompts, participants will sound, sing and use text to explore the agency of the whole body.
This class is open to all levels and abilities.
