Workshop: Ioanna Paraskevopoulou


Mute Out Sound

Under guidance of Ioanna Paraskevopoulou we will experiment with the sound that our bodies can produce using different materials and objects (vacuum pumps, ropes, balls, etc.) and different surfaces to recreate the sounds of film scenes. We will live as foley artists and film protagonists playing with on and off stage processes.
