Patricia Bardi’s work combines vocal expression with physical movement to deepen awareness and awaken perception in ways that foster transformation. Participants will use vocal and physical practices to explore the skeletal, organ and fluid systems as a source for discovering resonance of sound in the body. We will work with connecting our breath to physical sensation while actively moving in space. We will engage with sound and language through improvisation opening up space inside ourselves, in partners and in a shared circle of sound & rhythm. From this sense of physical connection, we will move into interacting with sounds coming from physical gesture and fluctuating rhythms.

Bringing the body into a felt sense of awareness provides fertile ground for bringing our awareness & vocal presence into a whole body experience that supports our capacity to communicate and enhance our performance skills. Our expression begins to converge & navigate through uncharted territory refreshing our relationship to our creativity and aliveness.
