A sound soars from me like a bird taking flight in the morning.  It paints the walls and radiates beyond to all space my senses can perceive.  The sound becomes movement in my body and colours the room like a bird’s song colours the sound of the morning.

For many years we have been engaged in the voice work of the RHT of France, examining the roots of vocal expression and in recent years, with JHM, exploring this medium as a source for musical, physical and theatrical creation.  Beginning with the relationship of voice and body we have found ourselves drawn to where physical space and aural space overlap.  The body in movement speaks silently.  Movement writes its silent music into physical space.  We look for dialogue between physical space and music so that the space can breathe, and so the minds and bodies in the space can breathe.

The states of being that arise from this relationship have changed the way we perceive and create music.   We hope the audience can share in this process that we call “space-shifting”.
