Voice Box

Introductory Shakespeare workshop.

'Actors, teachers, poets  -  people from the US, Australia, Poland, Malta, Germany, Holland and Mexico - all united in their love of Shakespeare. By the end of the week the alchemy of words, figures of speech, elements of verse, rhythm and the joy of imagery had transformed sonnets and speeches into living reality. Creative satisfaction abounded.'


Listen to what these amazing women have been doing in the evenings for fun after 7 hours of voice work each day on this month's Introductory Linklater Voice workshop...



It's been a busy Summer at the Centre from organizing Bill Murray's New Worlds concert in the Stromness Town Hall to Kristin's production of Macbeth with local amateur actors - these were once-in-a-lifetime performances, much enjoyed by the community. Then Kristin did a four-day public-speaking course for the eight Young People who will be introducing and chairing all the Orkney International Science Festival's events. 

After a few days to breathe and recover we moved on to a three-week intensive Teacher Training block with trainees from around the globe undergoing the first stage of their Pathway to Designation which will be completed July 2019.  Kristin was supported by Designated Linklater Teachers (DLTs) Andrea Haring, Paula Langton, Anne Alanne, Mary Coy, Haerry Kim and Kimberly White.

As a lifelong voice practitioner engaged in theatre I am excited by the idea of a Northern Centre for Voice and Movement. ALRA is breaking new ground in activating an organisation focussed on the voice and movement skills that form the essential framework for effective performance. Ground-breaking vocal and physical explorations are afoot around the globe and the NCVM promises to provide a central hub for serious theatre artists to experience processes and methodologies that support, challenge and stretch the body, the voice and the imagination.


Kristin will lead a one day workshop at the Northern Centre for Voice and Movement's launch weekend: 22nd September 2018. Places are limited, to book please go to https://alra.co.uk/courses/ncvm
