Kannakol – voice explore workshop

Frederik Kannakol teacher

The first workshops, was such a success, so we have decided to do yet a workshop with inspiring Frederik Konradsen where he will teach Kannakol in a playful and dynamic way.

Two dates Sunday the 2. April and Saturday the 9. April both days 10-13.

Konnakkol, an ancient South Indian rhythmic language, which verbalizes the rhythms played on a percussive instrument. Put into a theater context, it becomes a language where one can express oneself with five simple syllables.

Da – De – Ge – Na – Dom!!

We will look at the myriads of ways to use this in combination with movement. An added bonus is how one is forced to control the breath through extensive chanting with various rhythms. And of course, get an up close and personal relationship with complex rhythms such as “nine by four” or “eleven by four”. This happens through simple osmosis, and by being exposed to the elements.

Open to all levels, so fear not, you who cannot keep a beat.

To top it off, we will learn the “War dance” chant.
