NOVEMBER 9, 2023 / 6 p.m.

Serbian National Theatre

IVA BITTOVA’S WORKSHOP is part of the programme of the second “Pocket Globe” festival and is of a closed type, intended for members of the Children’s Opera Studio of the Serbian National Theatre in Novi Sad. Since Iva Bittova is coming to Novi Sad on the occasion of the concert she is to hold with Vladimir Vaclavek at the festival, the organizing team decided to organize a workshop led by this experienced, world-renowned artist.

Iva Bittova (1958) has been developing her artistic expression for years within the most diverse genres, such as jazz, rock, folk, classical, and opera music, and even today her music is impossible to define more precisely. As she emphasizes, what deeply inspires her is complete silence, then nature, environment and circumstances in everyday life.

In her workshops, Iva strives to achieve a natural, unique musical moment and encourages participants to position themselves far from noise, distracting technology and stressful daily activities. The workshop includes: breathing techniques, vocal exercises,  overtone singing, circle singing, choral songs, improvisation and listening to silence and the sound of the environment. Participants are encouraged to focus on self-expression, developing a personal vocal message in their shared space and, at the same time, separating their abilities from their fears. In addition, through learning different approaches to music creation, styles and techniques, the workshop is also an opportunity for pure joy and play.

“My goal is to foster inspiration for everyone… Music makes us very happy! This is what we need!” – adds Iva Bitova.
