Experiments in Performing Body and Voice is an exciting new practical research project operating on the juncture of performance, movement, sound and score, that is inspired by The Newspaper Reading Machine, an experimental score making process/piece by composer John White..
Through a series of workshops Mistry explores the invention of unpredictable, playful scores and directives, investigating the many possible connections and combinations between voice, movement and the composition of actions, sounds and bodies.
