Mouths & voices workshop with Anne Naukkarinen

Update: the workshop is now fully booked. If you're still interested in joining do register above and you will be informed if a spot opens up!

What does a mouth need?
What does it desire?
Whose mouth is speaking now?
Why do some voices disrupt, undermine, comment on what a speaking person is saying?
Why is whispering such a pleasurable but scary sound?
Why did my mom say I had a bad-mouth?
How is your mouth today?
Why is the mouth full of fluids?
Can you twist your tongue?

This is an invitation for you to participate in the “mouths and voices” workshop. During the workshop we’ll examine the materiality of our mouths and voices through physical, vocal, breathing and listening exercises. These exercises tune us into the subjective and collective states of our mouths and voices. During the workshop we’ll discuss and share our experiences and thoughts with each other.

This workshop is free to attend but there are limited spots available. Please register your attendance through the Ticket Link above

The duration of the workshop is 3 hours with a small break. Bring warm and comfortable clothes and a notebook with you.
