Mask Work

Balinese Dance

Kecak  Voice & Gamelan Training

Mask Work

Masks show the important connection between Body and Voice. The Latin word persona means mask. The persona was a sonically projected image through the voice. Training in masks is an essential component to this workshop. Masks unlock the deep knowledge of the physical and emotional body. Activating the energy of Taksu opens and frees the imagination to move past the pedestrian linear experience of average thought rooted in personality or the ego driven self.

Lead by Aole T. Miller (Budi)

Balinese Dance

Like the mask work, the Balinese dance training is fundamental in the pursuit of TAKSU. Its metaphysical gestures provide a strong container for the cosmic energy released in the full commitment of this dance’s form.

Kecak Voice & Gamelan

Kecak is probably the last form of vocal chorus with a close resemblance to the ancient Greek chorus. It is a 5-part vocal chant that invokes the deep cellular vibrations of the primordial traditions of Balinese ritual. Participants will train in Kecak and deepen their connection to tempo/rhythm while finding the vocal spaces of trance.

 

Gamelan training will accompany the tempo/rhythm training of the body. The gamelan is tuned to the bodies chakra system. The tones and vibration will continue to support the physical open of the performers energy body. Having to keep the time and precision of gamelan music will continue to balance out the Thinking, Feeling and Will body of the participant.
