Some animals mark the boundary of their territory with torn tree bark; some with droppings; and some with sounds -- howls, barks, cries and screams. These workshops will explore flickering territories, sound marks, thresholds, wandering and belonging through embodied and disembodied vocalizing and movement. Participants will be guided through games and experiments in vocalization to find a balance of structure and spontaneity, freedom and form. For more information on the workshops, please email
