Rhythm and Listening - Body Music/Percussion Workshop with Pedro Consorte who was part of the Stomp cast!
What is rhythm? How to listen? What does listening mean? How to listen to the different body perceptions? How to search, create, compose, improvise and play at the same time? The session will be taught by one of the leading stars of STOPM!
The purpose of this workshop is to provide creative dynamics that stimulate the body senses and challenge the participants to research, compose and improvise with the body's music.
Through rhythmic games of body percussion, voice, improvisation, collective composition, sound and movement, the group will interact and at the same time mature its listening skills.
The goal is to find creative solutions that each body can find to musically solve the challenges individually and in a group. Here is a clip with Pedro performing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyiVAUxNWNQ
