18-19TH Voices of the Archetype of Myth Workshop

Llanrumney Hub, Countisbury Ave, Llanrumney, Cardiff CF3 5NQ, UK

This workshop provides an exciting way to expand and liberate vocal colour, range and expressivity. It uses movement, imagination and storytelling to access a wide range of vocal qualities and expression through exploring figures that inhabit the world’s mythology, such as The Huntress, The Trickster, The Child, The Mother and The Crone. These archetypes are not a character or caricature but a particular aspect or quality in all of us.

10am -5pm Price for both days £90/£70 concessions To Book please send a cheque for £30 as a deposit to Frankie Armstrong 45 Cecil Street Cardiff CF24 1NW
