Barefoot Opera challenges us to rethink methods of training the classical voice.
We begin by stripping our voices down to basics: body, breath, movement and sound. We reconnect with basic human responses: laughing, sobbing, sighing – the elemental tone qualities that signal our ceaseless human interaction with our environment.
We bring together an ensemble of performers who train with our responsive breath work, physical theatre techniques and somatic movement practice, connecting emotional and physical responses to classical voice training.
We reach out to local communities and new audiences, in productions tailored to engage their interest and involvement.
It’s time for you to know us better.
