This event occurred in the past. It is no longer possible to book tickets.
Susan Worsfold (Director of The Gospel According To Jesus, Queen of Heaven) will guide participants through a creative approach to developing our voices. Relaxation exercises are used to help release our breath, body and voice and link this to energised use of creative text. Working with the principles of taking space and an understanding of the breadth and blend of vocal textures that exist in us all, this workshop aims to build confidence in the way we use our voice and see ourselves.
Part of the mini-season celebrating the 10th anniversary of The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven. We aim to create a space that centres trans, gender non-conforming and non-binary voices and experiences so please consider this when taking up a space on this workshop.
