VIRTUAL: Voicing into Speaking workshop
Taught by Louis Colaianni
24th - 28th May 2021

This workshop combines the work of W. A. Aikin, Kristin Linklater and Louis Colaianni, whose underlying philosophy “is the same as that which permeates Freeing the Natural Voice. Colaianni has developed ways of extending freedom and sensuality from voice into speech so that one need no longer divide voicing from speaking. Any systemised work that I do on vowels is based on the vowel scale in W. A. Aiken’s book The Voice. The great value of his work is that it is grounded in resonance and equates the vowel scale with the resonator scale.” Kristin Linklater, Freeing the Natural Voice.

FRANCE: Wolfsohn- Hart Voice/Body Intensive 7 day Residential Workshop - August 2021
Margaret Pikes
The WOLFSOHN - HART voice work offers a way to experience and develop a deeper connection to your own unique vocal potential. Because vocal sound has its source in the body as well as in the world of our emotions, play and movement can often unexpectedly free up vocal possibilities that lie hidden and unexpressed. In the mornings we will focus on individual voices and in the afternoons on group improvisation, play and the development of individual themes including work on texts or singing songs.
