This February we are hosting new workshops at our studio on vocal improvisation, and spoken word writing and performance. 

On Mondays 14th and 21st of February the artist, performer and choreographer Xenia Taniko will host the Embodied Voice Workshop. The sessions will focus on vocal improvisation, encouraging deep listening and finding playful ways to use the voice as an instrument for sound creation and self-expression. Xenia’s artistic practice spans performance, music, magic practices, community building and participatory formats, and their work has been presented across Germany, Europe and the US.

Our second workshop on Monday 28th February will be hosted by award-winning writer and poet Cat Hepburn. Intro to Spoken Word will provide creative exercises and guidance for beginners interested in writing and performing their own poetry. Cat’s poetry has featured on BBC6 Music, ITV and at the Edinburgh Fringe. She has written two books, #GIRLHOOD and Dating & Other Hobbies, and hosts a talk show on Refuge Worldwide.

In March and April we have more workshops with FLINTGA* DJ/Producer collective BLVSH and Berlin-based production school Open Music Lab. More info on both coming soon!

All workshops will take place in person at Refuge Worldwide (Weserstr. 166, 12045 Berlin). As always, priority will be given to people with refugee backgrounds, people of colour, people from the LGBTQ community, women, trans, non-binary people and those who face difficulties accessing education due to their background.
