The Sound of Nature in our Voice
1 – 8 August 2023
«Giocando la Voce »: playing with the voice, Improvisation and Circlesongs with Oskar Boldre and Costanza Sansoni, indoors and outdoors, at magic places, by the sea and high above the cliffs combined with easy walks in unspoilt nature. Sing for the sea, for the stones, for the sky, for mother earth!
Oskar introduces us to the art of vocal improvisation with playful exercises, He has developed a method (“Giocaando la Voce”) that helps us to find a spontaneous, natural expression and a balance between control and letting go.
Costanza’s bodywork (“Canticorpi”) supports this process. She introduces different body and breathing exercises to selected music to connect body and voice and get into a flow.
Circlesongs are guided improvisations inspired by Bobby McFerrrin, similar to oral chanting traditions. The energies of the various beautiful places we visit will flow into our work.
Apart from the joy of singing, there are no special requirements for this course. Since we have two experienced leaders, we can also split up the group if we have different levels
Elizabeth Zollinger will lead us on easy walks to hidden places where we can do some ritual Circle Songs.and improvisations, inspired by the beautiful surroundings.
