Kristin Linklater’s vocal progression offers a thorough and comprehensive approach to strengthening and developing the actor’s voice. This workshop will focus on the resonating ladder - visiting chest, mouth, teeth, sinus, nasal and skull resonators in isolation to promote the range and flexibility of the voice.
What you can expect:
-A greater understanding of the depth and breadth of your voice
-Access to a full range of pitches without straining or pushing your voice
-Greater expressive capacity for meeting the demands of text and character
-Exploration of vocal qualities and intrinsic energy of each resonator
