"Voice is the muscle
of the soul."
Each voice has access to ”The Human Voice” which contains all possible vocal expressions of man and woman, deep and light, high and low, beauty and beast. The result is a singing technique, a therapeutic work to activate, express and discipline the totality of being. It is an instrument for unveiling and exploring psychological realities, and the harnessing of these possibilities for theater or for daily life.
Voice work has two directions – externally, in communicating with others. And internally, in awakening the singer’s imagination. There is no formula since each voice is unique. Each person is the deepest master of oneself. We all have to find the sources of creativity within ourselves – not from others. Students are invited to sing, to follow their voices, to move. To explore their imagination and to awaken different centers of energy. By entering a pre-verbal world, they rediscover the sources of language through contacting the pleasure of pure sound and the full resonances of their body.
As frontiers are broken, the singer experiences the universality of music within, finding voices of other worlds, other countries, sounds which evoke nature, animals, and machines. In short,
The Human Voice.
