Dear all,

I am very happy to announce that the founders of Laboratorium Piesni- Alina and Kamila- are coming back to Copenhagen upcoming Spring to facilitate workshop and teach new songs!

This will be very special event and the second time in Denmark so far, so it is expected to sell out pretty quickly. Places are limited and will go fast, so get in touch promptly to reserve your spot and feel free to share with others who might be interested.

Laboratorium Pie?ni (Song Laboratory) leads traditional singing workshops, using Alina Jurczyszyn author’s method of work with voice, body and breath, inspired by trainings of Centre for Theatre Practices GARDZIENICE and music works of Grotowski Institute, in its forest base in Brzezinka (Poland). Workshops are an opportunity to meet within a song, creating a space for free creativity for those, who have a natural need of vocal expression and would like to start (or continue) an adventure with the voice and traditional songs, as a material for work.

Workshops are focused on:
- group practice of music and traditional singing (working with traditional songs, learning singing in traditional polyphony);
- phenomenon of voice and its strengthening (emission, voice projection, breath training);
- awakening of the natural human musicality (the musical sensation of the world);
- partner and group activities (building a state of mindfulness, mutual respect and responsibility for common work, ability to fit to the group, creating a creative energy, mutual support and exploiting the potential of each participant).

How to prepare:
Take comfortable clothes (we will move) and water. We work barefoot or in comfortable indoor shoes. Bring one traditional song that you know by heart (no matter what language) that you can share with the group.

Workshops are led by the founders of Laboratorium Pie?ni: Alina Jurczyszyn and Kamila Bigus.
