Voice Xploration & Improvisation
Verena invites you to explore your own voice and to play with it musically and empirically. Listening influences the voice significantly, which is why active listening is an important part of this workshop. Targeted exercises help to experience the connection between voice and body and thus to include the body as part of the voice. In this way, we learn more about the quality of our own individual voice and its facets.
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.
