Linklater Workshops

“The result of the work will be to produce a voice that is in direct contact with emotional impulses, shaped by the intellect but not inhibited by it.  Such a voice will be a built-in attribute of the body.  It will have an innate potential for a wide pitch range, intricate harmonics. and kaleidoscopic textural qualities and will be articulated into clear speech in response to clear thinking and the desire to communicate.  The natural voice is transparent, it reveals, not describes, inner impulses of emotion and thought, directly and spontaneously.  The person is heard, not the person’s voice.” – Kristin Linklater, Freeing the Natural Voice
