Carmina Escobar: The Voices from Within into the World
Escobar’s residency begins with an all-day creative vocal workshop. Tickets are now available! Please purchase “Workshop Participant” tickets through this site, for $15 or $7.50 for members (contact [email protected] for your membership discount on this event).
Note that the event is all-day, outdoors, and includes a strenuous hike through the forest. Participants are asked to bring their own lunch and water, and we will provide snacks throughout the day.
The Voices from Within into the World is a creative vocal workshop to explore the voice in its manifolds of sonic expressions and its relation to space and to each other. Through games, vocal and body exercises, improvisation structures, sonic meditations, and conducting arrangements we’ll explore the capabilities of our voices conceptually and experimentally, the acoustic relations to space, and how the voice connects us to space and to each other. This workshop runs from 11am until 7pm, closing with an informal performance at 6:30pm. Registration will be available soon, and will be announced through our email list at indexical.org.
Carmina Escobar is Indexical’s inaugural Summer/Fall 2019 Artist-in-Residence, and this is the first of three events she will engage in throughout the year. Escobar is an internationally active performer and creative artist, and has been teaching voice lessons and workshops for the past 16 years across the Mexico, USA, Europe, and Latin America. Currently she is a VoiceArts faculty member at CalArts where she facilitates experimental voice workshops, forums, contemporary repertoire, technique and performance practice as well as individual voice lessons.
Escobar’s residency is made possible with funding from the City of Santa Cruz Arts Commission and an anonymous donor.
