When Inventing Earth ran its first Summer Workshop Series in Prescott AZ in 2010, a group of singers, instrumentalists, and composers came together to explore new music-making techniques together. They called themselves The Flying Body Choir and continued working through that summer and fall, completing a series of performances in the community. In one memorable show, the choir performed with big-head puppets in the Bread & Puppet tradition. (Puppets have been involved in all the Luminous Thread shows since.)
In 2014, in an effort to restart the Flying Body Choir, Inventing Earth brought Amy Green to in Boulder and Denver for a series of workshops on the chants of Hildegard of Bingen, showing us how to sing from the musical notation of the original 12th century manuscripts.
In 2015 in Longmont Colorado, Inventing Earth ran its sixth Summer Series, including workshops from Dino Deane and Leeny Sack. Dino continued to lead sessions throughout the summer for another group of performers calling themselves The Flying Body Choir, including three of the original members from 2010.
The Flying Body Choir is seeking new members. Singers, instrumentalists, movers, and physical performers with serious intent should inquire: firstname.lastname@example.org
