Through breath and rhythm, we tune our body instruments and free or voices to explore sounds, songs, and movement. Explore sound through Dohee Lee’s expansive range of vocal techniques to create a mystical and universal language. This workshop expands participants’ vocabularies with feelings, energies, memories, and stories to create new art.
This workshop pulls from Dohee Lee’s training and practice in Korean Shamanism and performative ritual by utilizing techniques that connect to voice, body, heartbeat and spirit. How we tune our bodies through sound, movement and rhythm, guides us to navigate and delve deeper into our individual and collective roots, cultural heritages, natural environments and social consciousness.
Through Lee’s expansive range of vocal techniques, along with rhythms, we will explore sound to create a mystical and universal language. With the tools of breath and rhythm, we tune our body instrument and free our voices to activate sounds, songs and movement. This workshop expands participants’ expressive vocabularies of feelings, energies, memories and stories from the current time to the past ancestral time to merge together and create a new art practice.
This daylong workshop is designed for everyone. No previous experience in dance/art/singing needed. Art materials provided.
