When I sing, I seek a way that leads me into a fulfilling sound and into the freedom of my expression. Singing involves going into the deeper part of yourself so I can draw from it: actually it is working on one’s own presence.
To support this process, I work with a body-based method, the “Danis Bois Method”, which is also called “Sensorial Education” (“Pédagogie Perceptive”).
I also offer this work to my singers – of course optionally – and cooperate with a colleague who is an experienced teacher of the method:
Under the motto “Gesten der Stille” (Gestures of Silence) there are open groups and workshops. There we train our perception with slow gestural movements. By means of kind of sensorial introspection, we practice meditation. It is a fine work on our consciousness, which makes the contact with our inwardness more intense.
Through our body, that is, our own matter, a wonderful access to mind and soul opens up. This affects our sound and expression in a beautiful way. Thus we can use our own potential of liveliness and sensuality better than before.
These groups are open to all interested people, not just singers.
