Voice Lab: A Workshop in Voice & Movement Exploration

Saturday, June 24th, 10:30-4:30pm

Third Life Studio, 33 Union Square, Somerville, MA

Your voice is a unique instrument ~ the only instrument where player and played-upon are one and the same. Your voice reflects both psychic and physical states and has the ability to convey simultaneously both what you mean and how you mean it.

Through guided exploration, improvisatory games, and combined vocal and movement exercises, Mali Sastri leads a workshop grounded in the expressive arts modality of Voice Movement Therapy, aiming to increase vocal flexibility, dexterity, relaxation, confidence and trust in the power of your own, authentic voice.

Bringing years of teaching and performing experience, Mali (a registered VMT practitioner and singer) provides a safe and supportive environment for exploration and creativity.

$100 ~ a limited number of sliding scale spots available on an as-needed basis

Space is limited ~ pre-registration required. For more info, and to pre-register, contact Mali Sastri (781-290-638, malisastri@gmail.com)
