Briefly about Kefas
Kefas is a voyager in the world of voice, body and movement and he dedicates his life to voice and singing - its source, expression and healing power. He believes that singing is an inherent and much neglected potential and right; that song in its nature is harmonizing and healing; generates peace and goodwill between people; and is an infinite spring of joy and energy.
Born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden, he has worked since 1982 pedagogically, therapeutically, and artistically with song, dance, play, and physical theater. He has given workshops in singing, physical theatre and movement in Sweden and internationally since 20 years.
At present, he is leading a number of choirs, giving Workshops in Sweden and abroad (Estonia, Latvia, Russia, Norway, Faeroe Islands, Switzerland, Belgium, Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey, India, China) while also receiving clients for private sessions with Singing and Therapeutic Voicework . He is allos offering session in groups or individually with Sound Healing.
He is regularly giving courses in Voice work, Song, Vocal improvisation, Play and Physical theater in Sweden and abroad and is also a valued course leader at international conferences.
He has found inspiration and knowledge among teachers as Rudolf Steiner, Alfred Wolfsohn, Jerzy Grotowski, Paul Newham, Werner Kuhfuss, Frankie Armstrong and many others but perhaps most of all, all the people who, in his work, have trustingly shared themselves and their life.
