Start off your New Year by refreshing your approach to the sounds of speech. In this 2-hour workshop, the origin of sound impulses will be planted firmly in the body, rather than in the mouth. After playfully physicalizing our way through the vowel and consonant sounds of English, we will put them back together again in the form of a short piece of text and use our playful curiosity to discover fresh insights.

When: January 27 6:30 – 8:30 pm
Where: Online via Zoom link (will be provided to those registered)
Suggested price: $25
Pay What You Can pricing available.
