(October 16, 2017) NEWS RELEASE: Sound is a Wave Multi-Media Performance Nov 17 & 18
Victoria – Waves are everywhere. Waves are us. People wave “Hello” to start a human connection. Waves determine our experience of sound, water, and light.
In November, artist Bisia Belina will present a voice, movement, light, and sound performance event called Sound is a Wave to explore the themes inherent in waves travelling through air as sound, and waves moving as water.
It will connect sound to light (and music and movement) so it can be seen by others.
The multi-media delivery of the story helps audience members experience the message presented by 10 performers in nine compositions. Sound is a Wave is a new music form creator Belina calls VocalBody Arts; the performance is 90 minutes long, with an intermission.
Sound is a Wave also explores the notion of claiming your voice, enabling each of us to speak up about what we believe.
The performance event will also explore the waves in water and how people need to make political and social waves to protect the integrity of the life’s essence. It will also examine the nature of sound waves as words and language, and how translation can aid our understanding of ourselves.
Belina is a performance artist with a performance background in vocal jazz. Also a registered massage therapist, she conceived and developed VocalBody Arts and is the founder of SoundBody studio, offering improvisational voice and movement solutions to life’s challenges.

(August 22, 2017) SoundBody Studio is Putting on a Show!
Mark your calendars for November 17 & 18, 2017 at the Metro, and plan to join us for a performance art show titled: “Sound is a Wave.” Tickets and additional information will be available soon!
In preparation for the show here’s what’s been happening…
- In June, 25 people came to our Call for Volunteers. Paul Palmer, director and Bisia Belina, creator presented their vision of a show that would showcase the voice and movement work we love so much (and have been doing for 20 years!!!!).
- 12 of us have committed to workshopping the concepts for 9 original VocalBody arts compositions over the summer months. The rest have volunteered as either Front of House staff at the theatre or have given their support in producing this event. (Thank you to All of You for your commitment, enthusiasm and input into this vision that has been in my brain for way too long!)
- We almost have a final draft of the event poster ready to go!
Some additional shout outs as well go out to…
- Darlene Arsenault who was our production manager will be contacting Front of House volunteers after august 20. She is leaving our crew and moving to Vancouver (Thank you for getting us going in the right direction!!! Discovering the fullness of you has been a pleasure. You will be missed).
- Anita Marshall, always on the search for Clarity, thank you for coordinating all volunteers and keeping us informed, on track and doing it all with kindness and tremendous patience and foresight. You are way more than a volunteer co-ordinator!
- Holly Pattison, thank you for coming back into my life and taking thepics of yet another creative project!!
- Anna Malkin, main videographer, OMG girl you know so much!!!
- And most of all to Paul Palmer, Director, who is my second brand and set of eyes. I couldn’t have done this without you!
Note: All 9 compositions will be set and ready by end of this month! (2 weeks away)
Official rehearsals begin in September.!!!! Thanks for confirming times with Anita!
