This lab is intended for anyone interested in exploring or using voice as a practice and/or in performance. Using an anatomy-based approach to increasing awareness of the breath, accessing many dimensions of sound production, and working into speaking and singing, we will discover how exploring the voice as movement can expand the variety of choices that are available to performers, connect us to our unique vocal power, and allow for a fuller means of expression through the body.
"Peter Sciscioli gave a wonderful workshop for our combined Music & Movement and Modern 1 classes. His ease with the presentation and explanatory demonstrations (some quite extraordinary) really showed us how deeply he is involved in this material, and gave us a glimpse at the breadth of his skill and knowledge. In one, all too short workshop (due to our class periods), my Music and Movement students were positively excited by the introduction to a different way of thinking about sound, movement, and communication. I could imagine his teaching being useful to many, either in or out of the Arts."
-John Hanks, Music Director, Duke University Dance Program
