THIS IS YOUR SONG: A Roy Hart Theatre Voice Workshop

Surrender your old ideas about singing songs and access vocal courage

A 2 day workshop: Saturday, February 23rd and Sunday February 24th, noon-5pm (10 hrs total)

The vocal work offered this weekend is grounded in the discoveries of the Roy Hart Theatre in London and in France in the 1960's & 70's which promotes a radical and exciting vision of the human voice: that everyone can have access to an "8-octave voice”, and that the process of uncovering the full range of expression can lead to breakthroughs in all aspects of life.

Whether you are a confident actor/singer longing for more freedom and emotional range, or a professed "non-singer" curious about challenging this definition, we want to help you reconnect to your ability to express wildly and fully with your voice, and create a direct and personal relationship to a song. Through highly physical vocal training designed to access an extended range of sound, group improvisation and solo work, let us lead you to your unique possibilities, both musically and personally.

In this two-day intensive, you will learn two songs, and have at least one individual coaching session with Gary and Ethelyn, designed around your needs and interests. In addition to the experiential learning of your work, you will gain tools for deepening your relationship to any song, expanding your expressive potential for future singing.

This workshop will have a maximum of 12 people.

About Ethelyn and Gary’s teaching:

“What Gary and Ethelyn are creating is a theatre that pushes the boundaries of what is possible onstage. They are theatrical innovators and highly gifted artists with something important to say with their work and their imaginations.”

—Leigh Fondakowski, Director/Writer The Laramie Project, The People’s Temple

“In her long-standing artistic collaboration with Gary Grundei, Ethelyn is breaking down barriers between vocal disciplines and performance styles in ways no one has ever done before. What Ethelyn brings to her teaching from her extensive experience as a performer is not only a thorough knowledge of how to access ones voice, but also a deep empathy for the inner process that students must undergo as they encounter, work with, and overcome all the personal blocks, and fears that crop up on the road to performance freedom. Because she is so sensitive to the nuances of human inhibition and hesitation, Ethelyns way of listening to and working with students offers each a special world of safety and support for his or her personal struggle.”

Stephen Wangh, Master Teacher emeritus NYU-Experimental Theatre Wing; author Acrobat of the Heart

This workshop completely changed the way I think about performance, the part of me that was engaged and activated onstage. I have never been more focused, or more emotionally connected to my work. The experience was at once out-of-body and completely in-body. Before this workshop, I would never have imagined that this was something I could do. Now, I’m not sure why I would do anything else.”

—Erica Terpening-Romeo, Actor, Director
