Ivana Vostárková

Ivana Vostárková’s work with the voice is not only artistic in nature, but therapeutical as well. In fact it was her occupation as a therapist which made her seek out wider contexts between various spheres of human existence. Vostárková’s focus is not only on vocalisation, but also the development of vocal skill. Those who visit her soon start to change holistically as she guides them in finding their natural self without any external judgements. Vostárková is able to name things purely, without any sign of criticism. Through her direct, yet loving approach, she helps people express themselves while staying open in order to examine their own true perception and treatment.
