Voice Xploration & Improvisation
We explore our own voice and play with it: How does the voice come to sound, how does it work in harmony with noises and sounds outside? How does it actually feel when it creates quiet space for itself or when it becomes loud, when it ventures into heights or vibrates in the depths. Targeted exercises support the explorations.
ARTISTBIO: Verena Brückner
The performer and singer, voice trainer and body therapist Verena Brückner was for many years a member of the Carpa Theater Laboratory, which took up structures of musical improvisation and explored them by means of movement and voice in space. As performance duo Erika Storm together with Anna Mendelssohn, she investigated "Transacoustic Movements" in their plays. Verena participated in theatre productions with Toxic Dreams, among others. With Eva "Gustav" Jantschitsch she founded the accordion-punk-duo Agenda Lobkov, which made it its mission to agitate workers' songs. Further musical projects include collaborations with Jorge Sanchez-Chiong, KMET, Franz Reisecker, Manfred "Raumschiff" Engelmayr, DUO MIGNON and others. Solo projects with accordion and voice include collaboration with visual artists such as Wendelin Pressl, Nikolaus Gansterer, Letizia Werth a.o., and with writers, a.o. Yosi Wanunu, Sarah Kirsch, Kae Uchihashi, Hans Platzgumer, as well as musical contributions on various CD productions.
She attended master classes at the Institute for living Voice (Belgium) with David Moss, Sainko Namtschilak and Joan La Barbara, a.o.
As a trained Shiatsu and Grinberg practitioner and with experimental voice work (including body-centred voice work according to Atem-Tonus-Ton) she works both in her own practice and as a voice trainer at various universities as well as with independent groups.
