I am interested in what each organism, with all its genetic and cultural individuality, has to say. I adapt my approach to age groups that range from youth to doctoral-level. I hold a PhD focusing on voice-derived interdisciplinary arts practices and teaches contemporary/devised performance with an emphasis on the space where music and performance & live art collide, cultural issues, and voice. I supervise doctoral students, and I co-developed the University of Winchester’s Doctor of Creative Arts programme.
Both inside the University and as a workshop facilitator, Yvon takes students on journeys into:
- Voice, and what ‘else’ it can do;
- Creative processes for performance and intermedia;
- Experiments with sound;
- and the world where sensation and emotion meet.
Yvon has given workshops at:
Theatre Academy of the University of the Arts Helsinki; University of Limerick (Republic of Ireland); University College Falmouth; Exeter University; University of Bristol; University of Central Lancashire; University of Newcastle upon Tyne; Mile Zero Dance; University of Portsmouth; University of York St John; University of York; The Arches, Glasgow.
