Somatic Voices in Performance Research and Beyond

Principal Investigator
Dr Christina Kapadocha

About the project

Somatic Voices in Performance Research and Beyond brings together a community of international practitioner-researchers who explore voice through soma or soma through voice. Somatic methodologies offer research processes within a new area of vocal, somatic and performances praxis.

Voicework and theoretical ideas emerge from dance, acting and performance training while they also move beyond commonly recognised somatics and performance processes. From philosophies and pedagogies to ethnic-racial and queer studies, this project advances embodied aspects of voices, the multidisciplinary potentialities of somatic studies, vocal diversity and inclusion, somatic modes of sounding, listening and writing voice.
