The Genetic Choir Ensemble will perform
Saturday, 18 June 2016
a graduation work of Cathalijne Smulders from the Cure Master of Sanderg Institute
Place: Burgerweeshuis, IJsbaanpad 1-5 Amsterdam
Time: Performances will start at 12:00 and 13:00. Be welcome!
Linking nicely with Genetic Choir’s recent work at the Sarphatihuis Amsterdam
where we worked with people with somatic, geriatric or psychiatric backgrounds, in this performance piece we will be working with Cathelijne Smulders and Tamara van Scheppingen in a combined exploration of the disruption of speaking and our relationship to space.
CIRCLE is an exploration of voices that mirror the boundaries of a space, an utterance, the other and a certain duration. It is part of a series of works that echo, mirror, displace and interrupt a ( ), to (dis)orientate prevailing flows of attention and meaning in favor of a more open, synthetic, porous and affectionate proposition of what ( ) can be.
The Genetic Choir workshop planning until the summer is complete, and workshops are filling up quickly… 🙂

SPACE / SOUND / BODIES, Utrecht
21+22 March 2015
It may not always feel like it, but your body, the space around you and your voice are all subtly connected: if one changes, the other two are affected. To become more aware of this triple interaction and be able to play with it as a performer in an interdisciplinary ensemble is the ambition of these two days.
“Find your space and you will find your voice”, Enrique Pardo tends to say to his performers. We will investigate this notion and find that any type of space, and any specific constellation of bodies in that space has profound influence on our voice. Everyday life trains us not to be too influenced by this, but for improvisers this is where the magic happens in live performance.
Our research will be to give this interdependency all our attention, so that we can play with it, be moved and surprised and use space, voices and bodies to their fullest ability.
