  • Online - Voice & Improvisation - August 2020

    "This was a challenging yet exciting space to play. 

    Ken and Paula are a perfect team."

  • Online - Voice & Improvisation - August 2020

    How were the teachers? 

    "They were superb"

    "Amazing energy and positivity"

  • Online - Voice & Improvisation - August 2020

    "YES! I was absolutely amazed by the way we created a supportive Linklater community in THREE DAYS through a computer!!

    All my previous experience had been semester-long in-person classes, where the community was built slowly, but this was such a much-needed jolt of invigoration!"


  • Online - Voice & Improvisation - August 2020

    "Ken and Paula gave so much of themselves, their experience, their joy, their love for the work and their love of working with us, it was truly inspiring.

    It enabled me to trust myself and to take risks. I watched people settle into themselves and I settled into myself. It was liberating knowing being confused and getting it wrong was OK, in fact it was an asset for everyone! I found that so liberating, so profound it made me cry. This experience was remarkable and went very deep.

    This work is for bankers, nurses, actors, builders, politicians, taxidrivers, police officers...everyone!

    The content and delivery of the work by Ken and Paula was life enhancing - how can you put a price on that?"

  • Online - Voice & Improvisation - August 2020

    "A superb course, delivered by experts who were determined to preseve the generous spirit of Kristin Linklater and succeeded with room to spare."

  • Online - Voice & Improvisation - August 2020

    "I have been out of Linklater practice for about two years, and it only took ten minutes back in the 'studio' (virtually that is) for me to realise how deeply I've missed it.

    This work nourishes my soul. It is fundamental to my humanity. It calls to me. And I love it."

  • Online - Introductory Linklater Voice Technique - August 2020

    "Paula was wonderful! Very engaged with the material and with me and I found her very supportive and encouraging."

  • Online - Introductory Linklater Voice Technique - August 2020

    "Paula went 'all in'. It was just unbeliveable how she managed to touch me via this flat screen.

    Great admiration for her work."

  • Online - Introductory Linklater Voice Technique - August 2020

    "I was impressed with how Paula was able to really connect with us on a virtual platform. I felt like she was very aware of each of us , and she did a good job staying in the eye of the camera so we could see her."

  • Online - Introductory Linklater Voice Technique - August 2020

    "This is a workshop and a training centre that is regarded very highly by acting professionals and it lived up to its reputation. It was delivered with aplomb and I just had the most fun. 

    Clearly, Kristin's spirit lives on, not only in her method."

  • Online - Introductory Linklater Voice Technique - August 2020

    I had such fun learning how to do something I have struggled with most of my life. That is using my voice. Speaking up and using my voice authentically. Along the way, learning about embodiment and how to release tension in my neck, throat and jaw. I have chronic fatigue and would normally struggle to get through one day of a workshp, but I got through 3 days and my friends said I looked more alive after."

  • Online - Introductory Linklater Voice Technique - August 2020

    "This virtual experience offers two unique gifts: a chance to connect with and explore our own voices in our own spaces, all the while breathing and resonating alongside our usual domestic chores and our professional and personal lives: and a chance to feel connected in our immaginations - virtually - with everyone who loves this work."

  • Online - Introductory Linklater Voice Technique - August 2020

    "Thank you to Paula and the Kristin Linklater Voice Centre for allowing me to be part of such a wonderful experience. I needed something in my life that called to my highest good and encouraged me to pursue my passions and dreams and this course has provided a gateway to access all that is possible in the next phase of my life. I am so grateful that I was introduced to this course and can't wait to continue my studies further into the magic of the voice".

  • Online - Introductory Linklater Voice Technique - August 2020

    "Couldn't believe this would work via zoom. But it did!

    Congratuations! Great teacher and workshop with a lot of momentum for developing my voice".

  • Poetry workshop - March 2019

    This has been a genuinely life-changing week for me. I cam alive. My voice emerges. It will bring my writing and my speaking to life. S.R. (UK).

    Thank you for a wonderful week. It was one hell of a ride through English poetry - plus my personal prosody, habits, insecurities. I learned so much - I still can't say how much... F.S. (Germany).

    Wonderful to enjoy Paula's warm-ups and then get lost in poetry so lively and heart-touching. Orcadian air is highly addictive! C.K. (Germany).

    In the Poetry workshop I realized that my voice can fly and arrive at a place I want it to reach. A simple act of letting it be free - it was a subtle and deeply moving moment. All those 'shoulds' and 'I can'ts' perished. I am learning a new way of perceiving my life both artistically and personally. C.J. (Korea)

  • Advanced Voice & Text - April 2019

    I'll never forget these days with you. It's an amazing place to breathe and concentrate on the work. I'll come back! L. (Germany).

    Singing together, sighing together, stretching tongues together. Exploring the path to vocal freedom. C.S. (UK).

    Thank you, thank you Kristin. Your honesty and authenticity come through and through. D. (Germany).

  • Sound & Movement: Embodying Language - April 2019

    Exploring vowels and consonants within the body is like learning a new language. One full of life. A.O. (UK).

    It's been a blessing again being here - breaking the boundaries, exploring the unknown lands of voice and self while being so well treated and pampered! V.G. (UK).

    Judy and Kristin - it's such a great pleasure working with and learning from you both and from the group. A fabulous week exploring myself and my voice with colors, mouths and JOY in movement! H. (China & Switzerland)

  • Continuing Professional Development - May 2019

    Thank you Orkney! Thank you for my voice! I love you! R.C.M. (USA).

    Wonderful to return to Orkney five years after Designation. FIve years of trial, error (and success), and now I'm filled up with new goodness. Thank you, Kristin, for creating a space to continue our lifelong growth and development as teachers. A. H. (Australia).

    I'll be back! P.S. Rena. Is. The. Best. T.W. (USA).

    I feel that somehow I've come home. The work was exhilarating, fresh and rejuvenating. Kristin brought her extreme focus, intelligence, sensitivity and generosity to the studio every day. I feel so lucky and cannot wait to return. M.D. (USA).

    I feel re-invigorated. Great to connect with the other DLTs and to learn from KL the shifts and changes in her method. I was able to work at an emotionally deeper and intellectually more sophisticated level. S.W. (Canada). 

    The chance to continue deepening my own craft and be in conversation with the other teachers from around the world has been priceless. L.N. (USA).

  • Introductory Linklater Voice - June 2019

    The course is excellent - and accessible to all levels of experience and backgrounds while maintaining a consistent flow of inspiration. I liked the balance of Kristin and her colleague Paula - the change of rhythm and style helped digest the information. M.

    I have never had such an amazing emotional experience. Thank you so much for the precious time! Y.C. (China).


  • Voice & Improvisation: Langton & Cheeseman - June 2019

    Learning Improv and Voice in conjunction is a unique and life-changing experience that only a place like this could offer. The rapport between Ken and Paula is remarkable! (Anon).

    Companions on the road cound not be better than Ken and Paula, whose experience, skill and sensitivity have guided my thoughts and boice in a safe, caring and professional way. Thank you! Do it again! J.B.

    An extraordinary week in an idyllic setting - I am so grateful to have been part of this generous community for a week of discovery. A.

    Exploring my new-found 'voice' as a vehicle for my imagination is a gift beyond all measure. R.F. (USA)
