About the Event
" ENOA Workshop - Looking back on an incredible week of ENOA Workshop - Ulrich Funk introduced us to the transformative Alexander technique, which focuses on relaxation and breath work. Paired with coachings from our Master in residence Sophie Koch, our Artists Fleur Strijbos Romane Cabaret Camila Mandillo Carlos Reynoso Claire Rocha Santos Matthieu Walendzik Marion Vergez Pascal Marion Bauwens Erol Ramadanovic unlocked new abilities. This week concluded with a stunning Lab concert, spotlighting these new skills. "
*In this workshop, we would like to explore the harmonious fusion of Alexander Technique and vocal training. Uncover the secrets of improved body awareness and posture to elevate the vocal performance of singers, an enriching journey into the synergy between mind, body, and voice.
Singers will be coached by Alexander Technique specialist Ulrich Funke and Sophie Koch for the vocal training. The 4 days workshop will close with a concert of the participants presenting the programm they’ve been working on during the preceding days and will be a good opportunity to apply the different elements they learnt during the workshop.
The main objective of this workshop is to help singers improve their body awareness and the way it impacts their voice and vocal technique in singing. The Alexander Technique focuses on improving body awareness, posture, and movement. These elements are essential for singers, as effective body posture and use are fundamental in producing high-quality vocal sound. We believe the Alexander Technique can help singers develop precise awareness of how they use their bodies to produce and project their voices. It can contribute to reducing unnecessary tensions in the body, improving posture and alignment, and enabling more efficient breathing, which is crucial for singing. *
