About the Workshop:

What is this voice, and how does it shift my relationship to my body? We will use our voices to unlock our breath body; and our bodies to unlock our voices. A circle. How can this continuous flow of information facilitate knowing, remembering and enacting? We will situate our selves in relationship to the past, present and future. We will invite our full histories into the room with us to join our sounding. I will facilitate simple exercises steeped in glorious vibration. The research I will share has been influenced by the work and practices of Jonathan Hart Makwaia, Nancy Stark Smith, Daria Faïn, Jennifer Monson, Urban Bush Women, Emily Johnson, Emilie Conrad, and many others. Some exercises will incorporate touch. We will move these exercises into fine-tuned collective musical scores, making room for doubt, convergence and interrogation along the way. Take your time. This work is accessible to all entries/experience levels.

About the Artist:

Choreographer/composer Tatyana Tenenbaum’s work employs breath, voice, fascia and musculature to excavates spaces of memory, power and transformation. Her ancestors wove their voices into the tuneful stories of the Broadway stage. She draws from this lineage as well as work with Yoshiko Chuma, Daria Faïn, Jennifer Monson, Levi Gonzalez, Emily Johnson/CATALYST, Andy Luo and lily bo shapiro, Hadar Ahuvia and the UNDOING AND DOING collective. Her work has been presented by the Chocolate Factory Theater, AUNTS, Brooklyn Studios for Dance, The Kitchen, Roulette Intermedium, and Danspace Project where she co-organized the collective terrain/splatform on voice and choreography with Lydia Bell and Jasmine Hearn, in conversation with Samita Sinha and Tendayi Kuumba.
