AKA/PAVED Arts Event Space
In this active workshop we will explore some of the many sounds the human voice can make. Participants should be ready and willing to move, make noise, make music, and have fun! The activities will include improvisation games and perhaps the creation of a collaborative, structured improvisation that could be performed in public.
Bring your ideas of self; ideas of place; ideas on “what it is to dwell”.
For those with limited mobility — no problem! Join in as you can with activities and games, your participation need not be restricted.
No experience necessary!
