Sins Invalid presents:
"Singing Your Passion"
A workshop with singer/songwriter Nomy Lamm
WHEN: Sunday, Nov. 16th, 2008, 1:30 - 3:30 pm
WHERE: 2781 24th St., SF, CA 94110
Every voice is important and deserves to be heard! Learn to access the physical and energetic components of your voice. Breathe, stretch, open and listen to what comes out without judgment. Hear your own voice in community with others who are learning to give voice to their truths. This workshop is playful, experimental, and open to all levels – especially people who are afraid to sing or have been told they "can't."
Nomy Lamm is a writer, musician and activist whose work has been featured in magazines (Ms., Punk Planet, Make/Shift), anthologies (Listen Up, Body Outlaws, and most recently Word Warriors and Working Sex, all on Seal Press), and onstage in theaters, universities and nightclubs all over the US. She has toured with Sister Spit (1999), the Sex Workers Art Show (2005), and the cabaret showcase Dr. Frockrocket's Menagerie and Medicine Show (2001). She has released two
solo albums (Anthem, 1999 on Talent Show, and Effigy, 2002 on Yoyo Recordings) and co-wrote, co-produced and performed in "The Transfused", a post-apocalyptic rock opera about multi-gendered animal-human hybrids, in 2000. She teaches voice lessons, and is currently working on her first novel, The Best Part Comes After the End.
Sins Invalid is a performance project which incubates and celebrates artists with disabilities, centralizing artists of color and queer and gender-variant artists as communities who have been historically marginalized. Our performance work explores the themes of sexuality, embodiment and the disabled body
Our workshops are open to anyone who is interested in exploring the intersection of sexuality and disability, regardless of prior experience in vocal work, movement or writing. Workshop participants are encouraged to investigate their intersecting identities within the social justice framework. If space becomes limited, we will prioritize participants who identify as having a disability.
