In his TERRIBLE NOISES FOR BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE workshop series, Misha Glouberman gets audiences of non-performers to run around, make noises and improvise together. As part of Extended Play, Glouberman will lead a series of six workshops in which participants will experiment with making noises and sounds both terrible and beautiful. The sounds will be entirely vocal (no instruments) and will use some components of theatre and movement.
No previous experience or expertise is required. The ability to sing or having familiarity with music or sound art is not needed. It may help if you like to listen to unfamiliar or uncomfortable sounds, but it’s definitely not a necessity. You just need to be willing to take part. Come prepared to use your voice in a musical and social experience/experiment with others!
(Note: We want to make this workshop accessible for people of all income levels. If the fee is prohibitive, there are a limited number of reduced-fee spots for volunteers. Get in touch to find out more.)
