SoundByNature® Inc invites you to a weekend of voice and nature - in nature. Our open workshops focus on creative singing and speaking voice work through experiential learning and improvisation and are targeted to all interested in voice training and/or voice pedagogics. Come to a single event or stay through the whole weekend.
12-13:30 Body Awareness
What is body awareness? How can we use body connection to enhance our performance? How does our body language effect on the people we work with? We use simple but effective tools to work on our physical and inner voices.
13:30-14:00 Coffee / Tea & Chit Chat
14:00-15:30 Story Telling
What is your story? Does your story help you in finding your joy? How to bring your story to the songs you sing / lines you speak? We'll explore both improvisational and interpretational skills in delivering our story in performance.
16-18:30 Possibility for individual training
How do different environments effect us? How do we experience space? How can we use space to benefit our performance? We'll take a look at both inner and outer environments.
14-14:30 Coffee / Tea & Chit Chat
14:30-16 Bringing Nature to Performance
What makes a moving performance? We combine the ideas of the three earlier workshops into a performance practice.
Träskända Manor & the Gingerbread House
Our homebase for the weekend, "Gingerbread House", is located at the Träskanda Manor in Espoo. Träskanda is easy to reach by bus, if you choose to drive you can park your car at the Manor's parking place.
The Gingerbread house was built in the 1820's and has served as the manor's guest house. The garden is beautiful and we recommend to bring an outdoor clothing for a restoring walk in the park.
Our workshops are free of charge but we do ask you to sign up since the space is limited. Welcome to Träskanda!
