Voce, ritmo e movimento.

Sta per incantare Roma, la cantautrice e performer Moss Beynon Juckes. Australiana di nascita, è cresciuta in Inghilterra ed attualmente vive a Berlino. Dopo la laurea in “Danza Teatro e arti performative” presso la Roehampton University, Moss ha cominciato a lavorare nell’ambito delle arti sperimentali e sociali, collezionando collaborazioni in tutto il mondo. Tra pochi giorni sarà possibile prendere parte ad uno dei suoi training attoriali in Italia. C’è tempo fino al 17 novembre per iscriversi ad “Incantation in Fanfulla-Rome: Voice & Body Improvisation with Moss”, il workshop dedicato a tutti, in particolare a quanti intendono sviluppare le potenzialità della voce, “scoprendo la gioia dell’improvvisazione vocale“.

L’appuntamento è al Fanfulla di Roma sabato 26 e domenica 27 novembre 2011.

Prima del corso, tutti i partecipanti al workshop saliranno sul palco il 24 Novembre durante il concerto di Moss al Fanfulla. Per le presentazioni ufficiali su Cosebelle vi proponiamo un video ed una breve intervista.

E poi non dite che non lo sapevate!


Vale. How did you start?

Moss. I began teaching after performing and learning for years. I started to dance when I was three in Australia. I performed since I was 7 or 8 in west end theatre shows and pantomime in Bristol, England. It wasn’t until I began to rebel at University, even though I was studying dance! When I discovered a world of the DIY (Do it yourself) approach and began experimenting across forms of music, dance and theatre with a great friend Alessandra Camozzi – who happens to be Italian! We travelled in Europe together looking for alternative musical theatre and learning. When I moved to Berlin 4 years ago, I began to co-work with Contact Impro & Tango Maestro Javier Cura. He has been very encouraging and has supported my work with voice and movement.

V. Which women have inspired you?

M. Many women inspire me. I am looking a lot to Meredith Monk – a long time voice and dance expert. I have not met her yet I must find a way! I have also been infatuated by the movement of canadian choreographer Crystal Pite lately. So well formed and yet organic and real. There are a couple of Czechs that come to mind; Iva Bittova and a friend Miřenka Čechová. Inspiring women. There are lots of men too; Bobby Mcferrin for example and Demetrio Stratos (another italian! Mamma Mia!)

V. I saw on your site that you’ve got to work in many countries around the world. Would you like to tell us some memories of your experiences around the world?

M. I was born in Sydney. I travelled in the womb I guess. First senses of Natures magnificence in North Auckland – New Zealand. I got anglicised after moving to England and didn’t travel for long periods, while I was growing up except in camper vans and for holidays. At one point I decided that I had had enough of England. I toured to China when I was 20. This had lasting impressions on me; karaoke around spinning tables of mysterious and still-living food, performing in some seedy venues, being a minority identity,and sensing something like the future; socialist capitalism?. The biggest lesson was to value ones autonomy. Berlin is still the place to discover that. It has been said it has “no ambition” this gives a lot of space to breath. I created a 13 person voice orchestra in one day in Berlin. I have many good memories; a 30 person performance in the Bechyne village Monastery with Javier Cura. Running around the village in costumes inviting public to come! We give a special 2 week summer international residency programme for everyone interested. See updates on facebook. Last year I was touring the Balkans with FATD. My favourite memory was street performing at night in Shutka; Macedonia- the biggest Roma community in the world (maybe)!
