What are the legacies we carry and those we leave behind?

Diane Roberts, in collaboration with David Smukler and Gerry Trentham, invite you into an exploration of root cultural voice, rhythm and performance. Participants will have an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of their unique breath and ‘core’ voice in order to foster a tangible awareness of vocal, physical and rhythmic potential.
