a polyphonic singing workshop
Old songs live in our bones. They know sorrow, joy, fear and anger. They know loss, they know love. This workshop explores song in its most primal state: pure emotional need expressed through voice, in its own unique cadence and shape.
Using imagery, relaxation, improvisation, and movement, we’ll dive into the world of traditional song to explore the urgent need that engendered the creation of song in the first place.
Over the three days, we’ll work with vocal anatomy; open and explore places of resonance in the body; and find new pathways between emotion, voice, breath and bone. We’ll sing old songs together, and together, we’ll make new ones.
Anna is a musician and performer whose training includes classical, traditional and choral singing, natural voice and vocal anatomy.
Originally from the USA, she has studied traditional song, lamentation and polyphony with artists from Siberia, Georgia, Ukraine, and Poland. She works as a music director, live sound designer, and voice coach, where her primary focus is on the relationship between voice, breath, movement and body. Anna is co-artistic director of Company of Wolves.
