About This Workshop:
Dates & Times: Saturday, July 8th from 1-3pm ET & Sunday, July 9th from 1-3pm ET
In this workshop, students will learn some of the basics of the Linklater Voice Technique. The Linklater Technique focuses on the discipline and tactile pleasure of stretching and elasticizing one’s body, of freeing the breath, and gathering the resonance of the sound vibrations in the bony hollows of the body; of undoing specific tensions in the jaw, tongue and larynx; and waking up the sweep of one’s vocal range, and engaging the lively economy of the articulators; may seem on one level as the routine of little actions, but on a deeper level it is carving out time and space in our busy day to meet ourselves – to be present in our whole being.
