FOR THE SUNG AND SPOKEN VOICE by Jorge Parente, Portugal
For actors, singers, dancers, musicians and for everyone who desires to sing. Explore the unknown. Discover your own vocal identity through experimentation with the body and voice.
The workshop is based on “The Body Alphabet”, physical and vocal actions developed by Zygmunt Molik (1930-2010) who was, since the beginning, a core member of Jerzy Grotowski’s Laboratory Theatre in Wroclaw (Poland). Molik was one of the principal actors of the company for 25 years during which he also took the role as the leading instructor of the vocal training. His method is recognised to have had a radical and transformative impact on the vocal training of actors and on theatre practices all over the world.
Jorge Parente has closely worked with Molik, being his assistant and disciple for over a decade and his – in Molik’s word – successor. Parente is a Paris-based actor, theatre director and teacher. He has developed a training program to pass on Molik’s method of The Body Alphabet and has taught in Brazil, France, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, and Thailand.

"Molik's voice and body work focuses on the release of creative energy and the search for the unity and connection between the body and the voice as the basis of an actor's process."
