Voice and InterPlay: 6 session Winter course
13 January 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm GMT
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Wednesday, repeating until 24 February 2021
With Mairi Campbell and Helen Chadwick
Mairi and Helen bring their skills as crossover instrumentalists, composers and theatre makers into the wee boxes we find ourselves in. Tight though they are, these parameters can provide a surprising number of creative possibilities.
Using techniques drawn from InterPlay and Helen’s song theatre background, we’ll explore the possibilities and transform our screens into stages and platforms for joyful solo and ensemble play.
Helen Chadwick is a composer, singer and performance creator. Mairi and Helen have co-facilitated on several occasions in recent years and look forward to creating a blend of improvised and shaped offerings with the group.
What is InterPlay? from Maryellen May on Vimeo.
“I recently took part in one of Mairi’s online workshops with my staff team. It was a fantastic morning, full of fun! Mairi held us in such a relaxed and creative way that she seamlessly opened out possibilities for creating playful embodied and dialogic space in our online ‘boxes’ I loved her use of different forms and media to enable integrated experiences over Zoom; it was accessible and fun.
So much so that at some points I forgot I was working online!”
“One of my colleagues commented that something 3D had happened that morning and that sums it up well. It felt important for our staff team to share this experience as all of our work is now online, and I also came away feeling that I had resources and confidence to try new things out and expand into an online space in a playful way.”
