CREATING AN OPERA (open level)
In this workshop series we will explore voice, body and movement, and then devise a short ‘operatic’ scene. Each of the sessions in the ‘Creating an Opera’ series will focus on a different performative element: experiential libretto text writing, ensemble and choir work, aria composition as songwriting, voice in space, embodied character development and devising methods.
The workshop is open to all levels and backgrounds, and is especially suited for those who want to explore voice, text and narrative.
Performer and sound artist Guy Harries has created several operas and musical productions with current socio-political themes. He will lead this workshop which focuses on devising performance with sound and voice, with inspiration from current affairs and activist DIY approaches. www.guyharries.com
