Kristin Linklater’s vocal progression offers a thorough and comprehensive approach to strengthening and developing the actor’s voice. This 8 week course provides a chance for new and experienced actors to refresh and deepen their connection to their voice. The course focuses on release of physical tension, connection to breath and vibration, releasing the vocal channel and developing greater resonance. We will progress through a series of exercises aimed at removing the physical and psychological blocks that inhibit the voice, so that the voice is in direct contact with emotional impulse. A free voice can connect viscerally with language, transforming connection and expression of text and character.
