EXchanges Series 2018 with Gabriel Dharmoo
October 9-13, 2018
In partnership with The Dance Centre.
This vocal improvisation workshop aims to awaken a variety of unheard sounds that sleep deep in your throat. Your voice will resonate with that of other participants, as you participate in various vocal exploration exercises, follow an intuitive choral conducting method specifically designed for non-musicians. Anyone curious to explore the full potential of their vocal instrument is welcome; no formal musical training necessary. A community-building, artistic, liberating, playful, unexpected and bizarre workshop!
