“To free the voice is to free the person,” Kristin Linklater.
Developed by world-renown vocal trainer Kristin Linklater the ‘Freeing the Natural Voice’ training awakens your connection to your natural speaking voice; a voice with a natural 2-4 octave speaking range, with the ability to express the full gamut of human emotion and all the nuance of thought and feeling

Who will be teaching?
Janie Gibson is an actor, theatre-maker and teaching artist. She has a background in Eastern European ensemble theatre, Shakespeare performance and devised theatre-making. Her voice work is grounded in the vocal practices of Freeing the Natural Voice by Kristin Linklater and the co-ordination technique of Song of the Goat from the tradition of Eastern European ensemble theatre. Both her teaching work and theatre-making practice is driven by an enquiry into the voice and storytelling as a source of creative expression and a conduit for human connection.
