An Encounter with the poetic languages of sound and movement

$65.00 (incl. GST)

•…Claudia Giudici, pedagogista, puts it like this, ‘When we speak of languages we refer to the different ways children (human beings) represent, communicate and express their thinking in different media and symbolic systems; languages, therefore, are the fonts or geneses of knowledge’. Poetic languages are forms of expression strongly characterized by expressive or aesthetic aspects such as song, dance or photography. (Vecchi, 2010 p.9)

Music and dance are all around us in the form of sound and silence, and movement and stillness, where, if one listens deeply, observes knowingly and has the ability to ‘read’ these poetic languages the extraordinary in the ordinary is made audible, visible and meaningful.

How can we build our sonic and kinaesthetic literacy? How do teachers plan for the elements of sound and movement to be part of the contexts for learning so that we can “listen with all our senses” (Rinaldi, 2012). What provisions are made for the children whose preferred ways of expression are movement and sound, or dance and music?

This webinar is designed as an introduction to attuning ourselves to sound and movement, so that we feel better equipped to notice, document, plan for, research and value these poetic languages. In short, so that we too can be “professional marvellers of children” (Malaguzzi in Vecchi, 2010, p108) as we research sound and movement alongside children.

The webinar

explores theories of listening and embodied practice

introduces tools for deep listening, sound-making and movement

provides examples of children’s responses to listening and moving

Jody and Karen, playfully, lyrically and gently explore the languages of sound and movement through a Reggio lens, drawing on their experiences in the worlds of music, dance, and teaching and their respective PhD and Doctoral research projects.

This webinar will be available for individual viewing for 7 days from payment date. It is for individual use and not to be shared.
