Exploring the Expressive Voice & Its Extremes

A workshop taught by Liz Stanton

Friday, May 10, 7pm-10pm, and Saturday, May 11, 10am-5pm

North Star, 45 Amherst Road, Sunderland


Tune in to find your voice

Discover the universe of sound that is inside you

Experience your boundless voice

Explore song and text

Create space and time with sound

We’ll begin with discovering and exploring the voice “as it is,” then work toward less familiar vocal areas. Through this process participants will increase awareness of centers of resonance in the body, developing a personal vocabulary unifying sound, sensation, image, and emotion. We will explore the voice in relation to simple song and spoken text. We will deepen the relationship to unknown vocal territories regarding pitch, timbre, resonance and dynamics. We will discover the world of vocal soundscapes and our connection to sound as an expression of space and time.

Please bring materials to which you feel a personal connection:

a short song

AND

5-10 lines of Shakespeare text

Liz Stanton is a New York City-based, multifaceted theatre artist, who has studied with a variety of teachers from the Roy Hart Theatre: primarily Richard Armstrong, Ethie Friend and Jonathan Hart Makwaia. She has incorporated the Roy Hart voice work into her teaching for nearly 20 years. She creates award-winning devised theatre pieces, composes music for theatrical sound scores, and she’s written an opera - "The Bacchae: In Song and Vocal Extremes." She is the theatrical development producer of Convergences Theatre Collective in New York City. Liz is an adjunct instructor at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in the Experimental Theatre Wing and New York Film Academy.

This workshop will include information introducing the theories and practices of the Roy Hart Theatre and of its predecessor and mentor, Alfred Wolfsohn. Wolfsohn discovered the potential of the “8-octave voice,” claiming that each human being can gain access to an infinitely wide range of sound and expression. This approach to voice training is not a prescribed technique. Each voice is unique and the way to this expansion of range is unique in its timing and development.
