Hours:60 h (9h30-12h45 & 14h30-17h)
Level:Intermediary & Advanced
Directed by Kevin Crawford, Carol Mendelsohn, Saule Ryan, with David Goldsworthy, Walli Höfinger & Orly Asody.
The Advanced Pedagogic Group offers this intensive workshop as an opportunity to engage with six teachers from the Roy Hart Theatre tradition over an extended period. Each teacher introduces their particular focus and pathway, anchored in voice work, to crafting artistic activity in a given form: theatrical, musical, vocal. It aims thus to extend our knowledge of the rich diversity these teachers offer, whilst increasing our awareness of their differences and possible contradictions. The workshop is primarily practical, exposing participants to three core teachers, who are directing the event, Carol Mendelsohn, Saule Ryan and Kevin Crawford, and three guest teachers from the Roy Hart Centre. The workshop format includes vocal and physical warm-ups, small group sessions guided towards developing vocal material, and creative ateliers. Participants will be invited to explore the artistic potential in material they bring (theatrical, vocal, musical) as well as material that will emerge spontaneously from the exchanges within the workshop. Moments of presentation allow us to fully appreciate how the material begins to take shape and form. During the workshop, several informal meetings will be proposed where teachers can speak more in depth about their particular approach and respond to questions.Video footage traces the history of some of the performances, in a wide range of styles and genres, that Roy Hart Theatre developed over the twenty years of its existence: this is complemented by video extracts from more recent works produced in collaboration with the Roy Hart Centre. Some writings by teachers and other collaborators about the creative process may be also be referenced.
