Body, Voice and Clay



Body, Voice and Clay is an exploring expedition inviting joy, sensuality, trust and cooperation using your body and your voice.

Hands on and movement practices provide a grounding base for the work with the voice.

Molding with clay opens the perception for textures of sound and offers ways t visualize parts of the anatomy we use for singing.

Teaching will be in german/english.

How to get there:

By car from Berlin, Leipzig or Dresden it takes around 1,5 hours.

The next train station is Herzberg (Elster – not Harz!!) and from there you can cycle 15km.

Unfortunately the bus connections are not so easy to handle - so if you arrive in groups we can pick you up from the train station by car.


a cook will provide vegetarian, biological food - everybody will be helping out with breakfast, cutting veggies, cleaning up...

If you like to sleep in a dormitory in the house, it´s 10€ per night extra, please bring own bedsheets then.
