Workshop: The Speaking Heart - September 21st, 2018 - 18.00
Workshop hosted by Aspasia was about transformational poetry. Participants were invited to learn about the transformative aspects of the spoken word arts. The vibration of the own voice is one of the most powerful healing instruments given to us. If we learn how utilize our voice in order to free stuck emotions and experiences, holds a great potential for self-transformation. The main ingredients of this workshop are authenticity and courage.
Learning to master the basis of communication, how to use a microphone, how to use your voice. Also how to get over your stage fright and how to put more power in your presentations.
The workshop was a real suprise for me. At the first sight it might seem that it's an event to hear the theory, but in reality it's a personal, intimate and comforting session to tacle ones needs to control ones' voice thorugh a real excercise.
Arthur Ervin Avramiea "I was surprised at how many things I learned in the two hours of the workshop. The comments from the coach, Milagros, as well as from the other participants, were very helpful. It was also insightful to learn how other performers think about their act. I found the atmosphere challenging, yet open and comfortable. I look forward to future workshops."
Joanna Leon: "The setting was relaxed and intimate with there being such a small group. It was particularly insightful as each of us came from a different performance background we were able to witness different forms of stage presentation. Also due to the small group they workshop was able to facilitate feedback on a very personal level from the coach and the other participants. The timeframe of 2 hours meant it was quite short but for me, I was able to fit it into a busy schedule rather than having to block a full day. I would recommend this to all kinds of performers."
