My Blood Is My Voice – Workshop Series

MY BLOOD IS MY VOICE
7th Jan, 4th Feb & 3rd March 2024
Bringing the new year in with community vocal work, My Blood Is My Voice draws from the neuroqueer experience to facilitate ‘collaborative embodied sounding’ – a type of vocal improvisation which invites deep listening to both the individual body and the collective body as a healing practice. No songs to learn & no such thing as out of tune – this series of workshops focuses on elemental visualisation as a way to find vocal frequencies which can open a deep resonance with the self and others.
My Blood Is My Voice is a ritual gig theatre & vocal healing project in co-creation; exploring the queer & neurodivergent experience through decolonised ways of working with the human body as a complete instrument and storyteller. We look to work in non-hierarchical modes of writing. Devising & composing music collectively & collaboratively through shared lived experience & magical practice. Deconstructing the gender binary of how the human voice should sound. We bear witness to freedom of expression in catharsis. However ugly. However wild. We are here to make space, give space & take space generously. To surrender and give to our collective power.
We create vocal ‘noisescapes’ collectively to explore questions:
What binds and separates our voice to identity?
What permits us to speak to our ancestry?
What does group vocal work bring out in community?
How do we identify with transformation, with stepping into our true collective form?
