The Human Voice and its Archetypal Structure Weekend Workshop - 5th & 6th of September 2015

The Human Voice and its Archetypal Structure | image2

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.'

      • listening skills
      • ensemble building and skills

      • application to sung or spoken text
      • one on one direction and increased awareness of potential areas of development
