Introductory Linklater Voice Technique translated to Russian...

"A wonderful week co-teaching Introductory Voice with Kristin to a lovely group of Russian professionals from business, science and theatre. Kristin’s two excellent Russian Teacher Trainees, Tatiana Savina and Vadim Kurilov, acted as interpreters, and my very rusty Russian came in handy (and improved greatly!).

 The group embraced the voice work with sensitivity and commitment, making many exciting, and at times touching, personal discoveries about the restorative power of connecting with one’s natural breath, opening the vocal channel, freeing the voice, body use and language, and building resonance and range. They then took this connection to breath, voice and body into articulation and speaking their texts. They worked with boldness and joy, increasing their personal presence, clarity of communication, and ease in the 'performance space’, be it on the stage or in the boardroom.
On the last evening we all sang Russian songs and after dinner walked down to the beach to watch the sunset on what was a gloriously sunny and mild Orkney evening. We even sang to some Orkney coos on the way!
Чудесная неделя работы над голосом с замечательной группой из России!"
Joanna Weir Ouston, Designated Linklater Teacher

12 individuals bond in the pursuit of lengthening their necks and heads, releasing breath into the middle and upper resonators so that more of them is available when speaking text...

What happens when a strong imaginative premise activates the voice, which then animated the whole body?: more freedom. This group of 11 deepened their connection to Shakespeare’s words so that the words could play on them."
