Workshop – Bringing Voice Together (Online Voice)

First Online Intensive Workshop

Dates: 7, 8, 9 May 2021.

Like many artists and practitioners whose primary medium of expression is through direct physical contact with others, Kevin has struggled to adapt his approach to a digital medium. However, following collaboration with Berkeley Executive Coaching Institute and their very effective use of digital communication in delivering their widely sought after certification, he has been inspired to adapt his work.

Recent one- on-one teaching and an intensive online workshop he offered to the Janacek Music Academy in Brno, Czech Republic, have convinced him that on-line training constitutes a valid and powerful alternative. Indeed, on-line courses can complement courses that rely on direct physical presence. Most importantly they enable us to keep present and alive our whole organism, as it expresses itself through the voice. Relationship, feeling and sympathy can be transmitted even in the absence of physical contact. The voice’s very non-corporeal reality does extend over a digital connection. Giving voice online is not ethereal but it is palpable.

Kevin offers one-on-one voice online, as well as small group classes and workshops.

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.

Caroline Boersma
Cellist, Baroque and Classical, Workshop Facilitator
Living in Castiglion Fiorentino, Tuscany, Italy

In my workshops “Your voice – My cello”, I help participants to discover their vocal potential through the vibrational power of the cello. Sympathetic resonance occurs between the instrument and the voice creating an atmosphere where the participants can find creative release through text and song.

Born in Amsterdam, Caroline studied Cello at the Amsterdam Conservatory before moving to Italy, where she has played for a wide variety of ensembles and orchestras including the Symphonic Orchestra Santa Cecilia in Rome. As well as her career as a cellist she has collaborated in music-theatre performances in Italy, the United States, France and The Netherlands.
