talking funny - sounding different (360G-Wellcome-219652_Z_19_Z)
In Talking Funny, Sounding Different we will create a performance lab within the HUB, to experiment with, innovate and empower humans and their ‘funny’ voices, from the written word to live theatre, from beat boxing to comedy. We will study the performance of the human voice as a potential source of anxiety and difficulty, and as a route to confidence and social contact. We will work with people with clinical voice issues, scientists, clinicians and artists to explore new art, new therapies and apply cutting edge neuroscience to our understanding of the voice and its effect on the audience. For this discretionary award, we are asking for funding for: meetings between the main collaborators, patient groups, and relevant artists and performers live events and rehearsal time to plan and develop the live events: these events will explore the possibilities of vocal performances across different groups of people, with an emphasis on people who 'sound funny' with an emphasis on voices that are rarely heard.
