This workshop will explore the speaking voice using breath, sound, movement and text. How can we give voice to what is important in our lives, in our communities, in our world? ‘To find one’s voice’ is to reject silence, ‘to find one’s own voice’ is a journey towards authenticity, and ‘to give voice’ is to publicly speak from your heart, mind and spirit — often in the face of oppression.
