//About the workshop:

The act of singing has been defined by our culture as an elitist act that only few may do. Public singing has all but disappeared from daily life. The institutionalization and corporatization of singing has lulled us into accepting that most of us have no business doing it. Yet singing is one of the most beneficial personal acts of expression and healing possible within the human form. 

This workshop will support newcomers as well as returning participants. You will be introduced to physical explorations of sound and will begin the process of reclaiming your voice as an instrument of expression. You will leave this workshop with a framework for a practice that you can carry with you and develop to suit your own impulses. This workshop will include detailed descriptions and explorations of diaphragmatic breathing, vocal function and health, resonant areas, vocal registers, and the relationship of your voice to your body, your memory and your emotions.

This workshop involves movement. Come with clothes you can move in and please bring water. Changing room provided. 

//About Michael:

Michael Kiley is a composer, sound designer, performer and educator working in dance, theatre and public installation. Over the last 15 years, he has been researching his interest in the human voice not as an instrument to achieve something, but to experience something. His teaching started to take on a full bodied practice after working with choreographer luciana achugar during the process of otro teatro, and has continued to evolve while collaborating with Faye Driscoll, Chelsea Murphy and Magda San Millan, and most recently as the creator of Close Music for Bodies (2017 FringeArts Festival), which used Personal Resonance as a generative practice.
