The Human Voice and its Archetypal Structure
A unique opportunity to work with one of the founder members of the Roy Hart Theatre and experience this approach to voice.
'Beneath the surface of "my" or "your" unique and individual voice resides a whole family of archetypal beings. Archetypes are the universal images that appear in dreams and diverse cultures and times of people around the world. Archetypes are rooted in both the emotions and the imagination, the primitive and the artistic worlds. They give us a unique structure for exploration, development, understanding - and integration, into one whole voice - the many qualities that vocal sound can manifest.'
At: ALRA (Academy of Live and Recorded Arts)
Royal Victoria Patriotic Building, John Archer Way, London SW18 3SX
The host: John Wild - trained Roy Hart teacher and designated Linklater teacher
The teacher: Noah Pikes - founder member of Roy Hart Theatre and continues its research under The Whole Voice, author of "DARK VOICES - The Genesis of Roy Hart Theatre"
The approach: Participants will be offered a safe, non-judgemental, structured environment, in which they will be invited to explore and develop:
- links between body, breath, voice and imagination through exercises
- play and improvisation
- extending physical, vocal and imaginative range through use of 'archetypes'
- listening skills
- ensemble building and skills
- vocal and physical spontaneity
- application to sung or spoken text
- one on one direction and increased awareness of potential areas of development
The workshop will cater for all levels, if you are an actor, dancer, singer, or simply wishing to further explore the potential of the human voice.
Cost: £ 90 for the two days. (Students and unwaged £70)
John and Noah are collaborating on a book introducing people to this approach to the voice. The workshop participant's feedback will be a valuable contribution to this project.
