The Body and a Georgian Song
FORMAT (workshop / performance / talk etc.
In our traditional western culture of choirs the body is mostly not being asked and had disappeared behind techniques, melody and mental concepts of right or wrong.
What happens, when our body become a main focus, while learning and singing a new song together ? What happens then to yourself, the group and the aliveness of the music ? What change of awareness is happening ? We will sing a georgian song.
Mareike Andersen has been working for 24 years as voice and music teacher in Berlin and by the sea. Out of her long voice research and her own musical experiences, she formed her body&voicework including the „unintentional moment“ ( Processwork P.O.P. Arye/ Mindell ). She developed concert- and choir projects, seminars for voice with a focus on bodywork, improvisation, movement and nature. The nature of the body is for her a main key for the aliveness of the own voice and music.
