The World is Sound offers since 2014 intensive learning experiences focused on vocal physical performance. This Fall for the first time TWIS will be hosted in the Biovilla (Setúbal, Portugal) for a 5-day immersive retreat in the nature with Irena Z. Tomažin and Alessio Castellacci.

The retreat invites to a journey into the poetic relationship between Body, Voice, Senses and Surroundings. Reconnecting with our capacities of embodied listening in a natural environment, we reconnect to our own voice, and become present to the one of the others and the acoustic dance around us. Irena and Alessio facilitate a shared space for practice, introducing their research and performance tools from different topics of voice & movement performance. The added value of working in this residential setting is that of living together in closeness to the powerful natural landscape surrounding Biovilla, slowing down one’s pace to allow a state of soft presence and deep listening.

The workshop is open to movers, actors, singers and interdisciplinary artists who wish to deepen their practice on the physicality of voice, engaging in a dialogue with the natural environment. It is not expected that you have any art pedigree or formal study, if you resonate with our offer, then this workshop is for you.

Classes are taught in English (with translation in Portuguese if needed)

▷►The retreat is limited to 12 participants, apply soon to secure your spot!
