Singing for Liberation with Melli Erzuah
December 1, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm CET
***New date! Please take note, this event will now be held on 1 December 2022 ***
+++This event will be held in spoken German+++
What if the focus is on feeling good?
In this voice empowerment workshop, we will learn to use the voice as a means of connecting to the body and directing energy to discover sources of power and inspiration within us. Patterns of powerlessness or pent-up emotions can be released and transformed into feelings of liberation and connection. We will do body, breathing and singing exercises together. No previous singing experience is necessary. No one will be asked to sing in front of others. The physical exercises are light and will be offered in different variations to fit your own levels of personal comfort. Emphasis is placed on building inner confidence and playful experimentation and there will be no judgement in the room.
*** Please note that this workshop is for BIPoC participants only.*** In accordance to MHAS’ vision and practice, some of our events are open for all participants while others are only for BIPoC folks. This is not “reverse racism”. 😉 It’s a commitment to creating and holding space for communities of color in an overtly white-dominant arts and cultural scene in Berlin. Thank you for your support!
Melli Erzuah is a Berin-based empowerment coach, choir director and gives seminars and trainings in intersectional pedagogy. Melli holds experiential spaces for power-critical spiritual coaching and workshops that activate the body’s own resources to be used for personal, artistic and political transformation processes. Melli works from an intersectional and decolonial motivation and Black queer lived experience that takes into account social structures, histories, and dynamics and brings the experiences of marginalized people into focus.
