In ImaginAction, we believe everyone can and should be able to express their true voice and inner and natural self. There are many pathways to discover and do that, ye in our core team’s experience, there is one method and philosophy which stands out in particular, the Roy Hart Theatre Voice work. We feel blessed by being taught (before and during the COVID-19 pandemic) by RHT teachers Carol Mendelsohn, Saule Ryan, and Kevin Crawford, to keep deeply developing the inner capacity work necessary for any social artist. This summer, we would like to recommend a unique in-person 10-days intensive in the magnificent Roy Hart Centre, hidden away in the green hills of southern France. If one hour of RHT voice work can change your life (and it can) imagine ten days of it! We invite people in our network who are considering joining the training to contact us about it. We might have a “secret mission”, write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and will let you know about it.
MORE ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
The Advanced Pedagogic Group offers this intensive workshop as an opportunity to engage with six teachers from the Roy Hart Theatre tradition over an extended period. Each teacher introduces their particular focus and pathway, anchored in voice work, to crafting artistic activity in a given form: theatrical, musical, vocal. It aims thus to extend our knowledge of the rich diversity these teachers offer, whilst increasing our awareness of their differences and possible contradictions. The workshop is primarily practical, exposing participants to three core teachers, who are directing the event, Carol Mendelsohn, Saule Ryan and Kevin Crawford, and three guest teachers from the Roy Hart Centre. The workshop format includes vocal and physical warm-ups, small group sessions guided towards developing vocal material, and creative ateliers. Participants will be invited to explore the artistic potential in the material they bring (theatrical, vocal, musical) as well as material that will emerge spontaneously from the exchanges within the workshop. Moments of presentation allow us to fully appreciate how the material begins to take shape and form.
