A two day immersive exploration of voice as experienced through the body, in relationship to partner and the space around us. This workshop will focus on foundational principles which utilise somatic practices and Embodied Voice techniques to bring about the awareness, awakening and activation of our authentic voice. This work is focused around breath understanding and practice as well as Release Work, a practice dedicated to the release of sound and emotions through physical sensations. Through a flow of movement and breath we will awaken sound vibrations within the body -resonating the bones and tissues- creating a visceral understanding of the voice and the origins of sound. We will then focus on more advanced and creative explorations of the voice including resonators, extended vocal techniques with practical musical examples, exploration of text and song as well as vocal improvisation. This practice enlivens new possibilities for song, text, vocal improvisation and all of communication. Full body, full breath, full emotion, full potential. Julianna Bloodgood, is a multidisciplinary theatre maker, vocalist and performer. From 2009 - 2018 she worked with award winning and critically acclaimed Polish theatre company Song of the Goat Theatre (Teatr Pieśń Kozła) becoming a principal performer. She is a resident artist with New York based Theater MITU and Slovakian company Honey and Dust. She is the co-founder of The Great Globe Foundation, a non-profit organisation which utilises the power of creativity to inspire and empower the individual voice and to help build bridges between people and communities. Through this organisation she co-founded and led the Dadaab Theatre Project, a youth based theatre initiative in Dadaab, Kenya, the world’s largest refugee camp. Julianna’s work includes anthropological performance research and she has traveled extensively in search of different cultural perspectives on the body, voice and the ritual of performance. Her research with the body and voice has led to an in-depth and ongoing development of this connection which she calls Embodied Voice Practices. Julianna has a particular interest and research in the vocal practice of lamentation, giving shape and voice to our pain, which has become a through line in all of her work. She performs, teaches and researches globally. https://www.juliannabloodgood.com
