You're invited to a February 14th Earthdance Evening for the Senses, featuring an Ambrosial Dinner to awaken the senses; and a Voice Bath with Odeya Nini for finding resonance in the ears, body, heart, and soul. For individuals, couples, and families. No date required; dates welcome!
The voice is an instrument that radiates from the soul, resonates in the body, and is pure breath and touch. This two-day workshop is dedicated to sensing the voice, strengthening the relationship with our vocal instruments, and realizing the healing effects we have on ourselves and others when we use our voice with intention and love. We will explore sound as touch, and practice exercises that clear mental and physical expression, develop the imagination, and invite awareness and meditation.
Evolving over the last nine years, A Solo Voice, composed and performed by Odeya Nini, is an investigation of resonance, extended vocal techniques, performance, and pure expression, exploring the relationship between mind and body and the various landscapes it can yield. The work is a series of malleable compositions and improvisations that include field recordings and theatrical elements, aiming to dissociate the voice from its traditional attributes and create a new logic of song that is not only heard but seen through movement and action. In a multi-dimensionality that serves to both provoke and soothe in abstract communication, the voice is presented in its spectrum of natures as it travels through cultures, ages, emotions and colors, like photographs, with tender intimacy and bold aberrance.
A weekend of public installation, performance, and discussion with E|MERGE Creators-in-Residence 2020, culminating a two-week long Interdisciplinary Collaborative Residency. During E|MERGE, performance and visual artists, activists, scholars, scientists, and more come together to explore methods of creation and collaborative decision-making through structures that allow for risk-taking—horizontal organization, collective decision-making, cross-disciplinary collaboration, nonlinear process, and more.
