Constellation Chor* | an immersion in voice, movement, and spirit is a vocal performance collective founded and directed by Marisa Michelson. We are essence-seekers.
We express through two primary performance branches – our improvisation branch and our slightly-more-traditional composition branch.
At the center of both of these branches is our improvisation practice based on a set of principles called Core Sounding. Our aesthetic itself arises from these principles.
We are singers, composers, and dancers. We are committed to developing our practice together over a long period of time.
We honor sacred group consciousness. We honor the sacred individual.
We practice moving and voicing our way in and out of each other’s orbit.
*Chor from the Latin Cor meaning: heart, soul, mind; and the Greek Khoros meaning: to dance in a circle…
~chor is also meant to evoke the core, the center and the essence~
Chor is inside of“chorus” and “choreography.” The gestures and impulses we are working with might become voice or they might become movement.
