Extended Voice

Intimacies 1            

Directed by Yvon Bonenfant, University of Winchester & the Choreographic Lab/Northhampton Uni.

Dancers/Vocalists/Co-choreographers: Carine Gori, Dominique Bulgin, Caroline Gill

A performance research project exploring the relationship between extended voice and physical gesture where the theories and practices of psycho-organic analysis are applied to sourcing material both for dancers and singers. What happens when the voice becomes a brain, or the hand is given a voice?

Many meetings over several months – 2 dancers, two vocalists, developing an improvised score for performance (performed at the Choreographic lab) through practices and exercises informed by biodynamic psychology (the work of Gerda Boyesen) and other somatic, vocal and internal explorations, relationships and challenges.
