Voice and Body Exploration

October – November 2017

A chance to play with your voice

This Voice and Body Exploration series will be led by Susan Bamford Caleo. It is designed for people wanting to develop their voice and body awareness and to play with the expressive potential of their voice. The classes will

  • include explorations through improvisation and gestural work with a particular focus on the work of Zygmunt Molik (Grotowski Theatre Laboratory) and the extended voice work developed by Alfred Wolfson and Roy Hart
  • establish a shared practice with an emphasis on creating the potential for embodied vocal and physical choices and imaginative flight
  • incorporate spoken and sung voice and may include monologues, poems or songs.
  • offer the opportunity to establish a network for discussion and information sharing

Susan is an award winning performer and a teacher who is fascinated by the intrinsic connections between the voice and body. She has taught voice privately and at institutions including Federation University, St Martin’s Youth Arts Centre, Melbourne University, APS, Victoria University and the National Theatre. She has a Postgraduate Diploma in Voice Studies from the Victorian College of the Arts.


The series begins with a weekend workshop on 28-29 October 10am to 4pm and then you may continue over 4 weeks on Thursdays 7.00 to 9.30pm: November 2,9,16 and 23

SOLD OUT season at La Mama

JUNE 28 – JULY 2

A duet in fragments. Vocalist and percussionist take up their positions. Susan and Elissa are facing a beast of their own wondrous creation. They plunge into the chaos and the comedy. Taking the monster by the tail, they get to work.

Given breath by the creations of others including Rainer Maria Rilke, Sharon Van Etten, Gyorgy Kurtag, Nina Simone and more, music and words are unleashed.

Created and performed by Susan Bamford Caleo and Elissa Goodrich
