Voicing Your Body - Part 2

AIT is pleased to host the second voice-body workshop by Meri Nikula on
OCTOBER 9 at AIT Room, Daikanyama, 19:00 - 21:30.
Meri Nikula was AIT artist in resident with support from FRAME and The
Finnish Institute in Japan during early 2009.

Following her very successful Voicing the Body workshop held in April, Meri
is back to lead another session of breathing, movement & voice, inspired by
Qi Gong and yoga as well as contemporary dance and experimental vocal

We will start with relaxing and warming up of the body and getting gradually into
the voice, moving into group improvisation exercises and experiments.

The workshop is a fun and self-revealing 2.5 hours, and no previous dancing or
singing experience is necessary. This workshop goes deeper from the Voicing
Your Body (Part 1), but newcomers are also welcome!
Please wear or bring loose clothes.

The workshop will include some simple instructions and explanations in
English by Meri.
