Ana Vrbaški & Marko Dinjaški: Voice & Body Percussion in Eberharting
Es bietet sich eine recht seltene Gelegenheit. Das serbische Duo Ana Vrbaški und Marko Dinjaški unterrichtet am 3.2.2018 in Eberharting den Workshop Voice & Body Percussion.
In diesem Workshop werden Körper und Stimme zu einem Instrument. Der Körper bietet eine erstaunliche Vielfalt an Möglichkeiten zur Lauterzeugung. Unterstützt von Gesang tasten wir uns in der Gruppe an Lieder und Rhythmen heran, bis hin zu ungeraden Beats des Balkans.
Ana und Marko leben seit 20 Jahren als Künstler am Rande des Nationalparks Fruska Gora im Norden Serbiens. Sie starteten ihre Laufbahn als Musiker, folgten aber auch ihrem Interesse für das Kunsthandwerk, das Theater und die japanische Butoh Performance. All diese Einflüsse finden Platz in Ihren Kursen und Aufführungen.
Wer einen Einblick in Ihre aktuelle Arbeit bekommen will, findet unter diesen Links jede Menge Videos:
Der Kurs ist offen für alle, die sich gerne mit Stimme und Rhythmus beschäftigen.

Body as an instrument
Body percussion and vocal workshop for everyone interested in developing music skills and creativity
Body percussion is a technique of using our body as a percussive instrument: learning different ways to clap, snap, thump and stomp, and also making unusual sounds we can play with our hands, mouth, fingers, etc. During the workshop „Body as an instrument“ we put the focus also on techniques of breathing and singing, as this is an instrument we always have handy with us and which we can use in any moment.
Music aspects are monophonic and polyphonic singing (two or more voices) and rhythm; body awareness is gained in three different bilateral orders (right and left, upper and lower limbs, front and back) by applying different body music types: static, semi-static and dynamic. If the participants have music education, more complex compositions can be achieved.
The workshop is conceived for everyone: people with no music education are welcome, as well as one that have it. Everyone has a sense of rhythm and music, because we have an everyday experience of it: heartbeat, breathing, footsteps. When you speak, your voice has its rhytmics and melody. So we learn what we already knew, or rather, we return to the knowledge we had. Every participant can execute a task according to his abilities and this way improve his set of skills and understand how to perform more complex tasks. Since we learn to overcome mistakes and to carry on doing the exercise in the group, we also learn to overcome the biases as „I don’t know how to sing“, „I don’t have a sense of rhythm“, „I can’t do it“ and change the way we think and behave also in our daily life.
This way of work is an art therapy, a unique anti-stress program. Workshop as a concept is a small world for itself: everybody is equal and they participate and function by rules of a healthy group; everyone feels safe and can achieve personal development. The workshop is conceived to satisfy different needs of modern people on multiple levels: the participants relax and plunge into the exercises, forgetting about everyday problems and develop essential skills: concentration, coordination and synchronization of movement and voice, memory, dexterity, sense of space. It develops intense activity in our own, inner, and also in outer space, with the group of workshop participats, with whom we share mutual rhythm and melody. One of the workshop goals is to expand the „teritory“ of attention and multitasking ability, for during exercises there are set tasks and other in which participants improvise freely, like walking through space and meeting and influencing each other. That is why this is not just a music workshop, but it approaches the whole being of the participant and stimulate creativity through execution of complex tasks.
Coordination of different actions: clapping, snapping fingers, singing or speech, movement in space, direction of eyes and gaze demand that participants are present in the space and present moment. From simple tasks we build up to more complex, gradually adding steps, so participants do not feel discouraged and give up. Because the participants ARE the workshop! That is why every workshop is different. And what is similar is laughter, working in relaxed atmosphere, because executing complex tasks requires complete concentration and attention, and relaxed but active body and mind. So we always return to contact with our breath, which is the link to focus on the body and mind united and present.
And when we think about body and sound, we also think about dance and open body, free from tensions. We gain freedom through the process of learning, because we need to master the rules of the game; after that, the mind has a very serious and hard task, to understand that it needs to forget previously learned and let body do what it should!
