Nely H. Kornetová - The Body Of Many Voices

3. 4. 2019 / 10.00 - 13.00 / Astorka

The aim of this workshop is to work with the body and voice organically, based on real sensations. The voice as a starting point for the movement, and movement and touch as a starting point for the voice. The workshop aims to warm up participants flesh & bones, voice, and bodily consciousness. We will investigate how to use the body and vocal organs effortlessly, and how to intensify awareness of one's own body and voice in relation to others and space. To attend this workshop means to relate and react to the impulses, your space, and your current condition. I working with techniques such as voice message, humming into the bones, radical manipulation of the body (and its parts), all followed by focused improvisation based on imagination and recreation of given impulses. I am currently interested in the re-enactment of the impossible as a starting point for physical and vocal improvisation. How can the participant solve the problem of the absence of their partner or group, and still recreate the position and voice that they found themselves in naturally when working with their partners? We will play with contrasting qualities and apply different mental and physical conditions, frames, and rules as possible ways of exploring and creating instant compositions of movement and vocal material. We will work with focus and time in order to deepen and expand the work. The body is looked upon as the ultimate instrument in the orchestra.

This workshop is for performers, dancers, actors, or people who dare to work intensively with their body & voice.

Folklore, dance, tradition - does it mean anything to you? Would you like to learn more? At this year's International Festival of Theater Schools SETKÁNÍ/ENCOUNTER there will be a dance workshop of traditional folk dance from the regions of Moravia, Bohemia and a bit from our brothers from Slovakia! Sign up for the "Wanna Try Folklore!" The workshop is designed for Earth people of all ages, genders, and social status. The only condition is to bring sportswear and dance shoes (jazz shoes, dance shoes, cloth shoes, inadequate shoes with heels, beautiful flooring in the hall!) At the workshop we will try to dance, not just solo but also in pairs. It is an advantage to sign up in pairs, but this is not a prerequisite!


Dance, as we know, has healed the soul for centuries and heals today. Our ancestors knew this well. After hard work, they had fun together, creating the basis of folk culture and folk dances. A vast number of regional dance styles, individual dancing elements, and beautiful folk costumes still give us a chance to learn about folk culture today. Sign up to the energetic but also the educational workshop of folk dances, mainly from Bohemia, Moravia, and Slovakia. Dancers and dancers from the Brno ensemble Ondráš are looking forward to seeing you in their free time.
