Are you interested in working with voice as a medium for therapeutic expression?
This workshop takes you through different group activities focusing on voice, breath, and listening; as well as some one-on-one companioning using vocal improvisation that connects to inner thoughts and emotions. The voice we are exploring sits outside of singing or speaking; it’s a primal connection to our individual energy. In expressing indescribable feelings and sounding out with a listener, we intuitively re-discover our voices and strengthen our sense of self.
You will be supported in a safe environment within a small group for your exploration. Join us in reconnecting with our first instrument of expression, our voices.

(MFA-Sound Art, RMIT; MA ECAP, MIECAT)
Alice has been a practicing sound artist locally and internationally since 2003. She has developed her own way of working with voice, exploring in areas that are neither text or melody. She believes that each person’s voice is linked to his or her unique way of being and communicating. In these social exchange and self-discovery of vocal sounds, one’s principle personality is heightened. Our bodily sensations or inexpressible feelings can also find an immediate existence through voice and be allowed to be engaged by one or the others.
