This will be a day of singing songs based on archetypal journeys as well as songs from many cultures. Frankie Armstrong is an internationally acclaimed folk singer who brings to her teaching pure inclusive joy. Cost: $175.00. ($150.00 for VASTA members)
2. ‘Voicing & Embodying Archetypes of Myths & Legends’ [Saturday,July 28-Saturday,Aug.-4]
This one week workshop for teachers, performers-actors, singers, dancers-, is dedicated to exploring archetypes from myths and legends of many diverse cultures ie. Trickster, Benevolent Leader, Devil, Mother, Child, Love, Huntress, Noble Warrior, Prophetess, Creator and Destroyer.
Participants will sing, dance, chant, drone, yodel and give voice to vocal ornamentation and made-up languages in preparation for journeys into the archetypes. In addition there will be a strong focus on aspects of body release and energy that relate directly to each archetypal journey. Building on all of these discoveries, we will then apply the work to dramatic or comedic texts, poetry, song or whatever one’s own creative outlet may be.
Each workshop day will be divided into two-three hour sessions with a short break for lunch and discussion. A communal meal will begin and end the week. Time will be allotted for discussions of teaching the work.
Cost: $975.00. ($950.00 for VASTA Members)
Housing will be in shared cottages close to Sandwich’s Town Neck Beach. Cost: between $400.00 and $600.00 for the week.
Meals: Optional on- site meals prepared for breakfast and lunches. Meals not included in the workshop fee.
Transportation: By air to Boston’s Logan Airport and then by Plymouth & Brockton bus to Sagamore Station where you will be met and transported to you accommodations.
