MOVING VOICES

Teachers' Workshop with Caroline Leboutte

28th-30th October 2019

 

Tools to approach the main axes of a musical performance

In a 3-days workshop, through playful exercises, vocal and physical training, improve your flexibility, dynamism, coordination, balance, to boost your stage presence. Create motion sequences, in relation with music and singing. From walk to dance: movement can be an emotional vehicle. Learn how to use it through music.

We will improve how to breathe, sing and improvise, with games, songs and group activities.

Is acting is like teaching? How do you teach and learn, follow and lead?

Explore it with music, singing in duet or in a big chorus, searching for a collective dynamic.

LISTENING TO MUSIC
Teachers’ Workshop

with Violaine Fournier and Flore Fruchart

31st March – 1st April 2020

The artists will welcome you for a playful and pedagogical moment. Teachers in charge of young children will be able to experiment as a group exercises that they will then be able to use in their day-to-day practice at school.

During the workshops, we will go back to the origin of music and start from the sounds of nature and the everyday life of a child to build several key elements of music : rhythm, melody, orchestra and, of course, listening.

We will undertake our journey through songs, instrumental practice, body percussions, movement and space exploration with group games.

Every participant will leave the workshop with a tool box.
