Join our Early Years Incubate this Summer!

Early Years Incubate is a very special one-off professional development opportunity to work with Helena Rodrigues of Companhia de Música Teatral for two days this July in Norwich!

Helena is a founder of Companhia de Música Teatral, a group that has music at the root of interdisciplinary practice and that has been internationally acclaimed for their unique “artistic and educational constellations”.

She has been leading an innovative approach to training based on immersive experiences and on what she defines as “opening the gates on communicative musicality”. Physical theatre, somatic education and free play are at the core of this approach.

This is an unique opportunity to work with Companhia de Música Teatral in the UK.

Over the two days we will explore listening, silence, voice, movement. Searching for togetherness and authenticity, we will awaken "organic musicianship" to connect with ourselves and embrace an awareness of "intuitive caring". Caring is the intention; music expression will be the flow.

Listening is tuning.

Tuning is caring.

We will work on body awareness and movement, aiming to expand our listening skills. Vocal explorations aiming to awaken “communicative musicality” and to heighten self-expression in soundscapes and “vocal scapes”.

The environment will be stimulating, caring and nurturing.

Helena will also offer time for observation and discussion of video excerpts on the topic of art for early childhood and share insights into Edwin Gordon's Music Learning Theory for infants and toddlers.

Each day will run from 10am till 4pm in Stage Two, Norwich . We invite participants to arrive 30 mins beforehand and have allowed for a later departure time of 5pm to allow for space at the edges for hanging out. Lunch will be provided, and we can signpost to accommodation for those coming from further afield.

We have a small number of subsidised places available at 50% reduction of the full cost. These places are for people who may have barriers to attending - this can include financial, physical, location etc. Please fill in this form if you would like to apply for a supported space. We have 4 supported places available - we will notify applicants after June 12th if they have been successful.

Full price tickets are on a first come first served.
