Incantation Voice & Body Impro

The term derives from Latin "incantare" (tr.), meaning "to chant (a magical spell) upon," from in- "into, upon" and cantare "to sing"

 

The INCANTATION voice workshop is an insight into the power of the voice as an expressive and performative tool as well as a transformative healer.
Through vocal improvisation on the bases of Chant and Song, we will re-connect the voice and the body through a series of vocal & physical exercises that aid us in understanding our personal connection to our voices and to listen more closely to others. Circle sounds and song, words and gesture, tuning through an evolution of voice exploring primitive dialogues from breath into Glossolalia, through to more structured forms such as text on the one hand and song on the other forms of singing and chanting techniques from plainchant to polyphony as improvisation structures to create our own contemporary song and modern folk dance.

The investigation seeks to discover how chanting or singing is relevant to contemporary culture, personal stories and how the body supports the release of the voice in a supportive environment. We would like to create a voice orchestra to perform during the festival
