The fish within

Oceanographies Workshop #1


How much of jellyfish, fish or amphibian is still present in the human body and voice? In this workshop we try to get to the bottom of this question by exploring the movements of early phylo – and ontogenesis in connection with the sound of our voice. According to the phoniatrist J.Abitbol, the human larynx developed from the gills of fish. Likewise, our ears were already present in fish. So what distinguishes marine mammals like whales from other fish? Why can they sing ?

In a journey through the evolution of the voice, we will encounter these phenomena and questions in a practical way and at the same time unfold the potential of the voice.


We welcome you to dive into it together with Johanna Peine and  The Oceanographies Institute (Marialena Marouda, Charlie Usher, Elpida Orfanidou).


No prior knowledge requested.

The workshop is held on the 30th and 31st of January, precise hours to be confirmed. It is possible to attend only one session, but we give priority to people who want to do both.

Workshop held in English.
