And…breathe: An interactive workshop to connect the mind and body through the breath. Facilitated by Dr. Kate McCarthy
At a time when our encounters with the world are increasingly experienced through a screen, how can we connect our body and our mind? Working through a series of simple breathing exercises, participants are invited to connect with their breath in an effort to ground their body. The exercises are inspired by the work of voice practitioners Kristen Linklater and Patsy Rodenburg.
No previous experience of voice work or voice training is required to participate. Everyone is welcome to participate, and the exercises are suitable for all levels of experience.
This event is a partnership between Waterford Libraries and English and Theatre Studies Team from The School of Humanities, Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT).
Waterford Libraries and the English and Theatre Studies Team at the School of Humanities, WIT have joined forces to create an engaging series of bite-sized lunchtime presentations, based on themes and topics encountered by students on the WIT 3 year Honours Bachelor of Arts course. These are on a host of topics from books, transcription of letters to breathing exercises – all are free and open to everyone. The series of four presentations will take place on Thursdays from 11 March – 1 April at 1:15pm to 1:45pm.
