In December 2013, Professor Marya Lowry (Head of Acting – MFA Theatre Program at Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts) traveled to Cyprus, Poland and Italy to lead training sessions in Voice and Empathetic Listening for the artist/scholar teams participating in Songs of My Neighbours, in preparation of the project’s research phase. The research, to be conducted in Spring 2014, will see members of communities that share a critical issue come together, listen to and sing each other’s songs.
