Voice training breathing/sounding/singing

Body-oriented and experimental voice work, breathing/voice work according to ATEM-TONUS-TON®.

The core of this work is based on the experience of the correlation of breath, voice and body and how they influence each other.
The focus is on promoting and developing each unique individual voice, discovering and exploring its specific qualities (colours, textures).
Therefore, special attention is given to the different physical areas and resonance spaces from which the voice is generated or can be generated.
The classes consist of body and voice training, as well as singing, rhythm and improvisation exercises. We will further explore these principles by learning songs.

About me

I was born in 1969 in Sicily. I graduated in “Modern languages and Literature” at the University of Palermo, and completed her acting training with Philippe Gaulier in London. I studied singing with various internationally recognized singers, experimenting with different styles and directions. For me singing, theatre, and her studies , are just different sides of a whole, and I’ve been learning and practicing parallel all these disciplines according to my interests and curiosity. As a performer I worked in several international productions including Robert Wilson, Andrew de L. Harwood, Walter Manfré. Since 1996 I’ve  been living and performing in Vienna, and 2001-2018, I’ve been member of the Vienna based performance group Toxic Dreams. I was part of several performances by Otmar Wagner.

Besides my activity as a performer, I've been dedicating myself to the research work on old Sicilian songs which triggered the interest for traditional singing and led me to found the ensemble Irene Coticchio Trio (later Irene Coticchio & Continente Liquido). Music has become more and more importante in my professional life. Since 2013 I’m founder member of Cowbirds, a collective researching and performing on monodic and polyphonic songs from Corsica and Sicily. Many other collaborations followed.

The fascination for body work and voice led me to attend a course for craniosacral practitioner and lately I attended a
