Elastic Theatre: Voice/Art Experiments

6 September 2012

Artistic Director and voice coach Jacek Ludwig Scarso and acclaimed soprano Maya Sapone lead an original workshop in vocal exploration, drawing on the creative methodologies of Elastic Theatre (www.elastictheatre.com). Open to all levels of experience, this workshop is designed for anyone interested in the artistic potential of vocal performance. From high energy voice and singing exercises to world-music songs and vocal improvisation games, participants will explore a wide range of skills to develop creative ideas through voice. Uniquely for this event, the workshop will be inspired by the current exhibition at GV Art, which, alongside Elastic Theatre’s Julius, include the work of Rachel Gadsden. Elastic Theatre’s workshops have been acclaimed world-wide: recent collaborations include the Royal Opera House, Opera National de Lyon, RESEO (European Network of Opera and Dance Education), Arts Arena and BAW in Paris and The Living Theatre in New York.

Throughout the workshop, artist Rachel Gadsden will produce work inspired by the narratives exposed by the energies created throughout this workshop. The piece will then become a visual summation of the essence of this workshop.

Jacek Ludwig Scarso is the founder and Artistic Director of Elastic Theatre and Senior Lecturer in Performing Arts at London Metropolitan University.

Maya Sapone is an internationally acclaimed soprano and creative associate for Elastic Theatre. She has recently starred in the UK tour of The King and I.
