THE ECHO OF SILENCE
Workshop on vocal dramaturgy for actors and singers
The workshop deals with the unity of the physical and vocal impulse, the connection between the singing and speaking voice and with the relationship between text and action. The participants will work individually and in chorus to achieve the characteristic generosity of the voice which it gains at the moment when it is offered to the surrounding space and becomes alive there.
Julia Varley works as an actress at Odin Teatret in Denmark. Apart from acting she is active in directing, teaching, organising and writing.
