The Art in Listening: Nick Twilley

There are no upcoming events for the chosen month.

The Art in Listening: Nick Twilley Thu 02 Nov

  • Arts

This day will include breath work, listening, movement, meditation and a variety of approaches to engage your voice and your creativity, developing textures of personal presence.

Sound, rhythm, gesture and percussive rhythm with drums, bells, seed pods and other natural objects allow us to engage with each other in the group, calling us to find a deep stillness within sound.  Expect well-being, kindness and new understanding to come forth. No experience is necessary.

Please note:

This day also constitutes the final module of Nicholas Twilley’s course Creativity meeting Contemplation: Course 4 - Developing Artistic Expression.
The course examines how we can develop artistic expression out of ordinary circumstances. As we learn to appreciate our environment, we encourage conditions which support the exploration of our expressive self. Using the medium of performance, we will be refining and developing simple offerings into artistic pieces.

Nicholas Twilley is a world percussionist, poet, visual artist and master of listening and rhythmic improvisation. Visit his website here www.theartinlistening.com Ra Twilley is a classical singer, instrumentalist and a movement artist. He works in collaboration with Nicholas for The Art in Listening Programme.
