Voicing Bodies – Sound Performance Art
This workshop delves into the practice of ‘voicing bodies’ with artist Lynn Book. The burden of making sense in writing and speaking often delimits the imagination, and disassociates bodily experience from speech acts. The singing voice is often constrained by judgements of what a ‘good’ voice is supposed to sound like. When ‘voiced bodies’ are engaged, there is an exciting unpredictability that arises as we destabilize rules and roles of words, meaning and reinvent being. Through activated physical and experiential processes we’ll explore the dynamics of extended voice vocal and writing improvisations aimed at plumbing distances between impulse, feeling, image and utterance. Writing becomes physical, voicing becomes textual, and the body comes alive to new assemblages of desire in the making.
