A project that resulted form the above research was also created, especially to address the question of how to create one’s own performance that comes from the performer’s own voice. The project created was based on the poem Woman Inhabited by Words by Guisela Lopez – a poem that was very meaningful to the me. In the performance I improvised on the viola. The sound of the instrument was modified by a computer while the poem was recited, and at the same time, a contemporary dancer improvised to the music.
In this way, I combined my love of dance and of playing music in order to find a new depth in my performance and performance experience.
My research question was: How can I find my own voice on stage?
