In this Vol. 2 class of Akemi’s Schrei X8 series, participants will learn her unique method of uniting voice and body through a circular breathing technique and compose their own expressive resources in the form of vocalic screams. Thereby, the inner strength and something primal gets activated: barks, howls, roars and other natural sounds as well variations of the vocal work of artists such as Yoko Ono, Diamanda Galás and Marina Abramović. We will track down held-back emotions and try to release them with this effective act of catharsis. This is your moment – Balm for the Soul.
