Serena Korda: A singing workshop
Saturday 18th April, 11am—3pm
Rhubaba, 25 Arthur Street,
Edinburgh, EH6 5DA
(Suggested donation of £5 on the day)
Join us for a singing workshop led by Serena Korda with the Rhubaba Choir. This workshop will form the starting point for a month long project where we will work with Serena through regular rehearsals culminating in a performance on the evening of Saturday 2 May 2015.
Serena Korda is an artist based in London making film, performance and sculpture. Serena will be working at Rhubaba throughout April on her project, The Hosts: Ectoplasmic Variations. This workshop will form part of her project, where Serena will introduce her Witch Bottles: an army of ceramic vessels inspired by 16th Century Bellarmine Jugs used during the Suffolk Witch Hunts to ward off evil.
Using the voice as a percussive tool, we will work together to examine the resonance of the jugs, developing a rousing call to arms for these ceramic warriors.
It doesn’t matter if you have been in a choir before or only sing in your shower, if you enjoy singing, please come along and lend your voice. We’d love to have you! All are welcome (booking essential via Eventbrite). Come along to Rhubaba where we will be serving lunch and refreshments for everybody involved.
The Hosts: Ectoplasmic Variations has been made with the support of Rhubaba, Camden Arts Centre, Smiths Row and King’s College London.
With special thanks to Kat Buchanan.
