This workshop investigates the voice as extension of the body in the space and the voice as a tool to
explore the space inside the body. „In vox“; the vibration of internal space, sound as manifestation
of the sources of movement coming from within the body. „Ex vox“; the external presence of acting
vibration that explores the space and transforms spaces between performers, room and audience.

The voice can create an intimate but powerful connection to the space: resonances, images, personal
memories, or personal associations are projected into the acting space.

In this sense this workshop might be inspiring not only for dancers or physical actors to improve
their body and voice relationship, but also to discover the voice as a tool to get inspiration for their
own work and create artistic material.

Goal of the workshop is to produce a series a tools for the participants to integrate the voice into
their movement practice.

Movement experience required.
