Voice and Devising

Kevin's teaching reaches out to a wide public:

– Performers from all disciplines, theatre, dance and music

– A varied body of practitioners who wish to augment their skills
in vocal expression

– Individuals wishing to discover more about their voice,
its potential and connectedness to their lives and workspace

Voice and Devising

The voice can be a central partner in stimulating devised and physical theatre. By enabling the voice to reach a wide arc of its possibilities, we also increase our expressive palette.
Sometimes the voice itself can spark off areas of exploration, sparking off themes and actions that may then inform improvisation

Because the voice is a protean form of expression, it reveals emotions, but also creates aural images. It hovers between the person of the actor and the impersonal space of the listener/onlooker. Allowing the voice to be a prime mover in creating new material can empower a deeper exchange of ideas and initiatives. In workshopping text, in creating a sound world, participants learn to “irrigate” and fine-tune their project.

Kevin Crawford
Living in Castiglion Fiorentino, Tuscany, Italy
Worked with Roy Hart and was founder member of the Roy Hart Theatre from 1967
Has been teaching since 1975

At this point in my teaching I do not espouse a single philosophy or approach, although my work is permeated with Roy Hart’s direct legacy. My aim is to invite students to re-examine their assumptions about the voice, and to propose a coherent approach that they can refer to in their personal and professional life. My place in this is as privileged observer, informed ‘provocateur’ and patient guide for reconstructing a wider vocal vision.
