We invite you to take a look at the workshop information and register:
The Spontaneous Voice: Instrument and Metaphor with Hilde Knottenbelt
Our voices are an expression of our embodied selves. In this workshop, participants will enter the territory of voice in a broad sense. They will connect to their voice as an embodied instrument, through attending to the breath, resonance, rhythm, tempo, pitch, melody, feeling and text. They will be invited to listen, respond and co-create vocally with others. Dramatic enactments related to the area of voice as metaphor will be produced and particular attention paid to the voice as instrument within the enactments.
The Things That Glow with Dr Antony Williams
Using a variety of frameworks, and moving between pairs and the large group, participants will recall times when happiness tapped them on the shoulder. We’ll uncover grand and humble life events that have made us – to our surprise, perhaps – feel joyful and alive. The time for all of them is past, but we can enact them psychodramatically in a series of short vignettes, and lay out the welcome mat should they come again. You never know, we may even be able to discern certain threads between these times of happiness or contentment, which will help us be on the lookout for them in the future. We’ll spend some time preparing and delivering a post-session ritual for a protagonist in one of these vignettes.
Freedom from Shame and Doubt with Annette Fisher
Autonomy versus Shame and Doubt is a developmental stage in Eric Erikson’s psychological development theory. Through progressive role development, the psychodramatic method assists us to be free from the restraints of shame and doubt. This leads to a strengthening of identity and self-reliance that brings independence of thought and a basic confidence to think and act for oneself.
The conference is getting close now. We are very much looking forward to seeing you in January!
