The Hero’s Journey

Rhythm, body and voice residential LAB

As artists, makers, teachers in the creative arts, the importance of gathering and re-fueling is key to opening new doorways and modes of exploration.

This 4 day intensive, in the enchanting setting of the Château d’Assenois, will utilize voice, sound, rhythm, and movement, as we dive into the archetypal pattern of narrative that appears in drama, storytelling, music, myth, ritual, and our own lives! From the larger phases of the departure, the initiation, and the return, to the rich territory of the steps, or journey’s within the journey.

The theme of The Hero’s Journey, as identified by Joseph Campbell offers a rich and invaluable entrance point for creative exploration and play. It will serve as a springboard for participants, who will be guided into ‘ways in’ and processes of abstracting themes, ideas, as well as asking ourselves as artists, what fuels or feeds us? What guides us? In what way do we follow our bliss?

This residential training is for any person or artist, professional or amateur, teacher or therapist... using body and voice on a regular base and willing to enrich their practice through an innovative approach to rhythm in its relationship with voice and movement.

The TaKeTiNa sessions will help grounding the process by working on body awareness, quality of presence, musicality of both body and voice and the dynamic relationship between the group and the individual. A source of exploration of the journey in itself!

The workshops will be provided in English and French with translation throughout the course.
(min.12, max. 20 participants)
