Songs – an open work session – allows interested individuals to witness the work of Thomas Richards on ancient song with artists who have been involved with him in daily practice long-term. Such practical work on ancient song was initiated at the Workcenter in 1986, and has been carried forward in continual development by Richards over the last 35 years. Such sessions serve those at work to help widen their knowledge of a “work on oneself” that can be carried out through a specific approach to song and action.

In this sense, Songs is not a theatre performance, it rather a kind of “theatre non theatre” wherein, as in certain old traditions, work on song and action goes together with an approach to the interiority of the human being and its potentialities. These work sessions become a means of awakening subtle aspects of inner experiencing, and can serve as a tool for the transformation of the artist’s perception and presence.
