„The vocal practices surprise us for their simplicity and for the extreme rigor with which they hold the attention of the singer. It is not only a vocal exercise. A song is not a lengthening of thought, spoken out loud, nor is it the will to seek an expression. It is the sonority of breathing, the resonance of sound in the body and in space. The vocal practices come from ancient Oriental traditions, from anthropological research on chants, from the experience in Jerzy Grotowski’s Theatre Laboratory – Institute of Actor in Wroclaw,
