Invitation for participation and workshop facilitation at the contemporary dance centre, TQW (Tanzquartier Wien) Vienna, Austria.

"How and what do we learn through embodied practice? Even after several years of institutional and academic validation and support for artistic research, a gap between discursive and practical/embodied work persists. The research lab Embodying Knowing is an invitation to practitioners from dance and performance, other artistic fields, science and philosophy to cross discipline boundaries, exchange on what bodily knowledge means and does in their practice, and share modes of working, learning, and researching. At the end of the lab, the five participants will each share their practice in an open-level workshop." More info at TQW.at

"Embodied Voice as Intercultural Communication"

Is voice a starter or barrier in our encounters with others? What can voice be and do beyond language? What is the relationship between voice and identity? How do human voice and non-human sound effect, change, enable and relate to each other? In this workshop, we will explore the role of voice and vocal expression in experimental performance and everyday life. By engaging with movement, extended vocal techniques and singing, we will use sounds and songs as physical actions and cultural stimuli to connect and communicate with each other. You are encouraged to have a song in mind (in any language) to play with. You do not need to have experience in movement or singing to attend the workshop. Eda Erçin is an interdisciplinary and intercultural theatre maker, performer and researcher of contemporary performance. Born and raised in Turkey, her work questions the shifting relationships between body, movement, language and identity. She holds a PhD in Performance Practice (Drama) from the University of Exeter (UK) focusing on performance of gender, auto-performance, physical theatre and phenomenological performance. Former manager of HopKins Black Box Theatre at Louisiana State University (USA), she is currently a lecturer in Theatre and Performance at York St John University (UK) teaching actor training, voice and ensemble making.
