Educated as a classical singer and specialised in contemporary art music, voice improvisation and group creativity, as well as the education of music teachers and voice teachers, Ms Bichel is also Chair of the Danish Voice Association.

Methods based on mindfulness and meditation will be introduced as well as methods based on playfulness and dogmas to free the minds, the bodies and the group musicality.

Ms Bichel will work with gibberish as a meta-language in communicative exercises and let us inspire from both singing therapy, theatre improvisation and contemporary classical pieces written in graphical scores. In addition, she will work with the difference between establishing a groove and being surprised by a groove that emerges in the group without being controlled by an individual and with emerging harmonies and sounds that no one could have invented.

Who is this workshop for?

– Singers and actors looking to explore their voice potential
– Mature and young adults looking to connect with the potential of their voice
– People on a journey of self/discovery
– People working with psychotherapeutic approaches

Participants on all levels of their voice exploration are welcome.

The workshop will take place on Saturday 12th January 2019 from 2.30 until 8.30 pm and Sunday 13th January 2019 from 10.00am until 6.00pm at The Helen O’Grady Academy Malta, 93, Triq Kananea, Attard.
