Remembering the Voice

Today we worked with voice in studio.

I am less interested in seeing what a performer is “doing” or what they can do –and more interested in how they are “being” and how is the quality of their attention.  We can follow the voice, let the sounds be what they are and not judge the tenor, pitch, or any other part.  The voice can be beautiful, ugly, kraggley, soft, animal like, sweet, silky, stuttering, a whisp.  The focus is on locating an easy inner initiation and then following that into the unknown.  The breath. This traveling leads through feelings and worlds.   Other cultures arise and dissolve, so does our own ancestry, darkness and the light.
