The Body is Voice workshop by Heini Nukari strengthens the creative synergy between body and voice. We expand the expressive potential of voice through exploration of breath and motion. Exercises carried out solo, in pairs and as groups give us tools for finding new voice and motion patterns, and guide us towards comfortable, creative improvisation. How can your own voice inspire motion? How does motion support the physical qualities of voice? How do they resonate together? The Body is Voice workshop supports each participant's individual journey to his or her body, yet never forgets the positive synergy that is produced when a group of people stop to listen to each other.

The weekend workshop and the weekly sessions are open for everyone interested in motion and voice-based expression. You can participate in the weekend workshop, the weekly sessions, or both. Professional dancers and performing artists are also welcome!

She is inspired by techniques such as Roy Hart Theatre's Sound Method, the Release Technique, contact improvisation, butoh dance, yoga, qigong, Body-Mind Centering and Authentic Movement.
