Gary Logan, Gerry Trentham and Lisa Beley have taught and researched together at Canada’s National Voice Intensive for over two decades. They each share their advanced knowledge of Linklater voice work honed in tandem with their individual expertise in text, movement, speech, directing, acting, voice coaching and performance creation.

The workshop is open to all levels. Seasoned actors and advanced performance students are invited to renew and revitalize their craft. Directors and playwrights can gain a more profound understanding of the actor’s craft as well as a new organic process for their work. Dancers and movers and performance artists can expect to find a deeper connection to their own bodies through the window of their resonant voices. Students will develop new tools for their toolbox. Voice and drama teachers will acquire new approaches to enrich their teaching.

Participants should be prepared to arrive with memorized monologue text and be available to spend the full day including the short lunch break dedicated to integrating new learning. Participants are welcome to bring text that interests them including western classical monologues, culturally rooted texts and monologues, or contemporary play monologues.

Reminder – The studios can vary in temperature so dress in layers. We will be working in bare feet for the most part. Bring your own water bottles and stay hydrated.

We are grateful to our host the Shakespeare Theatre Company
