ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
What are sound games? Created by Robert Leonard in 1979, ‘sound games’ are musical pieces designed and written to be performed by both musicians and non-musicians alike. The compositions may be inspired by Western as well as non-Western music, familiar works or be an original creation.
Sound games can provide non-musicians with skills in sonic imagination, while helping developing a sense of rhythm and listening to others. They encourage ensemble music-making, through the honing of new reflexes from one partition to another.
The objective of sound games is to develop musical communication through the pleasure of playing with sounds, whether they come from the voice, the body or percussion instruments. They allow us to alter our way of listening and modify our relationship with the musical fact. During the week, we will interpret the great "classics" of sound games and we will elaborate a new one!
ABOUT THE ARTIST
From her first tango class, Nancy Lavoie was seduced by the rich expressivity of the dance. She travelled to Argentina to study with teachers who experienced the golden age of tango, in order to better understand its sources, traditions and language. From the beginning, she learned both how to guide and be guided. A passionate promoter of tango, in 1995 she founded the first school dedicated to tango in Quebec: l’Avenue Tango. In 2005, she became a member of the Tango Discovery collective, a movement research group based in Buenos Aires where she perfected her pedagogy and developed methods of movement teaching and partner work inspired by cultural anthropology and the analysis of human phenomena. Nancy is also a piano teacher, holds a bachelor’s in music, is a certified massage therapist in California massage, sports massage, Momentum, and is a Tragermd practitioner. Since 2007, she is an instructor at the Centre l’Attitude in Californian massage, Abandon corporel, Consciense corporelle as well as massage for pregnant women. She is regularly invited to give intensive workshops and present short choreographic works in New York, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Rome, Stockholm, Hamburg, Zurich, Oslo and Paris.
