Workshop – From the voice to the word through sound

Dates: 21 – 26 September 2021.

Directed by Kevin Crawford and Caroline Boersma

This workshop opens pathways to embodying text and finding the journey from sound to word through musicality and listening.

Morning: warm ups followed by intensive small group sessions are an in-depth preparation, that sensitizes us to the alchemical bridge between the vocal and the verbal, the imagination and the sound.

Afternoon: ateliers give full rein to the material we have drawn up and offer us opportunities to expand our presence vocally, verbally and musically.

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.
