– LISTENING DEEPLY: VOICING CHARACTER-
ANNA ZUBRZYCKI: MASTER CLASS
01-05 AUGUST 2016
A master classes in Vocal techniques by Anna Zubrzycki, held in Wroclaw, Poland. This intensive five day workshop will help performers to delve deeply into the emotional and imaginative source of their singing and speaking voices, too often neglected in performance training.
By exploring our voices as individuals as well as merging them with others we embody them in the landscape of our imagination and emotions. Song is a key which opens up the internal world of character, metaphors and our relationship to the ensemble. The performer becomes a musical instrument within the symphony which is the performance. This workshop will give participants a chance to experience this through the unique approach which Anna has created over her 30 years as a teacher and performer. It is a holistic approach to voice which coordinates it with movement, rhythm and the imaginative impulse of the individual within the context of ensemble work. Song, text and voice phenomena can be used to find new sources of creativity, as they awaken the sense of internal and external rhythm, spatial awareness and focus. The workshop is aimed at mature performers and students of theatre studies . The creative material of the workshop will be Euripides ‘Medea’ Participants are invited to choose a monologue from the play in their own language, as well as a dialogue as the basis for their personal work during the week. Additionally each participant should bring a song which has a strong internal resonance for them and comes from a traditional culture of their choice.
