30 Juin - 5 Juillet 2015Ways to the VoiceRalf PETERSregister

Directed by Ralf Peters

Hours : 24 h (9 h 30 – 13 h30)
Price : 360 €
Participants : 10
Open to all

There are always different ways leading to „my“ voice. In this workshop we will explore some of them to find out which ones are the most promising for the current situation of myself and my voice.
There will be a focuse on the way of „training“ the voice, a way that is not necessarily evident for the idea of the voice that follows Alfred Wolfsohn and Roy Hart. How can a regular training help to free the voice to itsself – without following a theoretic idea how the voice has to be, but following the directions the voice wants to go?

7 - 12 Juillet 2015Personnal Presence – Voice & Communication Skills For Business ProfessionalsIvan MIDDERIGHregister

Directed by Ivan Midderigh
Hours : 36 h (9 h 30 – 13 h & 14 h 30- 17 h)
Participants : 10
Price : 540 €

Based upon the actor’s discipline of effective, engaging, and heightened communication, this workshop, focuses on the person as a communicator addressing voice, body, heart, spirit, imagination, and emotion. Participants develop their natural ability to express feeling, inspire others, and build trust among teams.
Participants learn powerful language, active listening, how to give and receive feedback, empathy towards others and presentation skills. Through the programme, effective communication and compelling dialogue become intrinsic life skills.

The Skills
The actor has to be clear on the meaning of the text, so that it will come across to the audience. They have to use their voices with enough volume and colour to ensure the audience will listen and also behave in a way that supports their words, as well as having the self-confidence to face the audience and be able to improvise – to think and act quickly under pressure – if something unexpected happens.
All these ‘actor’ skills are also required by business people, and, indeed, anyone who is required to address an audience. The audience may be one person, a group meeting, or a large corporate gathering
Storytelling is also an essential aspect of the work. Everyone has stories which are gathered from their life experiences. The connection between one person and another, between a presenter and the audience, is firmly established by the telling of a personal story.

Ivan Midderigh

A founder member of the Roy Hart theatre and senior facilitator for Corporate Scenes since 1992, Ivan has led seminars with wit and style for major international companies including AT&T, Pacific Bell, Nortel Networks, The Gap, Sandia National Lab, Levi Strauss, MacKinsey and Co, is a guest lecturer at The Olin School of Business at Washington University, St Louis, and is senior faculty with the annual Executive Coaching Institute at the Center for Executive Education, University California Berkeley Haas School of Business.
He also spent 5 years (2004 – 2009) in South Africa as a master facilitator of the Brand Ambassador programme for Avis Corporation of Southern Africa and the Brand Champion programme for the Kelly Group and Transnet.
Ivan creates a fusion of humour, honesty, compassion and energy in his work, helping business professionals expand their ‘presence’, and communicate more effectively while developing their interpersonal relationship building skills.

Price : 297 €
Participants : 12
Level : Intermediary & advanced

A workshop of discovery and playfulness : as we listen , words take flight
The voice is an amazing tool, capable of diving to the depths or driving us to ever dizzying heights. The Cello is an instrument that sings, that vibrates nerves and bones, that , by its mix of wood and strings, pierces and radiates through us. Bringing these two elements together in a workshop is not just an idle challenge, but is a real encouragement, an invitation, to dive deeper into the subtle alchemy of sound, word and musical gesture.
Moments of collective work alternate with small group classes, that heighten our listening powers and bring into play voice and cello, essential and éloquent partners.

“The choice for leaders in business and organisations is not whether to be involved in storytelling – they can hardly do otherwise – but whether to use storytelling unwittingly and clumsily – or intelligently and skilfully. Management fads may come and go, but storytelling is fundamental to all nations, societies, and cultures and has been since time immemorial ”Stephen Denning ‘The Leader’s guide to Storytelling’.
Telling the Compelling Story teaches the art of inspirational presentation through storytelling. Effective leaders need to be able to inspire and motivate. There are times when storytelling is the most effective and efficient way of making a point or confronting a difficult situation. Participants learn how to construct a succinct and powerful story and master the skills necessary for delivering appropriate and compelling messages. In this workshop the participant will draw a River of their life marking out the key moments, events and people that have influenced the direction of their lives. From this ‘life river’, three personal stories will be worked on and rehearsed, which can subsequently be used in a presentation context.

The Skills
The actor has to be clear on the meaning of the text, so that it will come across to the audience. They have to use their voices with enough volume and colour to ensure the audience will listen and also behave in a way that supports their words, as well as having the self-confidence to face the audience and be able to improvise – to think and act quickly under pressure – if something unexpected happens.

All these ‘actor’ skills are also required by business people, and, indeed, anyone who is required to address an audience. The audience may be one person, a group meeting, or a large corporate gathering

Storytelling is an essential aspect of the work. Everyone has stories which are gathered from their life experiences. The connection between one person and another, between a presenter and the audience, is firmly established by the telling of a personal story. Once the connection is made, people will listen to the information the speaker wishes to give.

The activities in a workshop range from active, high energy group exercises, to calm dialogues and reflective listening. The work is a mix of group work, partner work and individual work.

28 Juillet - 2 Août 2015Voice Dance SpaceEdda HEEG & Rosemarie ANTON*register

Directed by Edda Heeg & Rosemarie Anton*

Hours : 33 h (10h-13h & 17h30-20h) Sunday : 10h – 13h & 14h30 -17h
Price : 495 €
Participants : 12
Level : All

In this workshop we aim to explore each individual’s creative space through voice and dance, following the thread of emotions and images and giving them expression.
We will work in studios, with time for individual work, and also out side, using inspiration from the countryside around. How are voice and movement affected by nature and the elements – for example down by the river, by the light of the sunset or in an ancient chapel? And how can we best integrate these influences in our own creativity?
When we work out of doors, we may have different working hours.

Price : 540 €
Participants : 12
Open to all

Enseignement en français + possibilité de traduction en anglais, en italien ou en espagnol, selon les nationalités des participants.

Ce stage va combiner deux approches, la pédagogie du Roy Hart Theatre et celle du Massage Sensitif.

Il s’adresse :
- aux personnes intéressées par le travail vocal et corporel du Roy Hart Theatre et qui veulent expérimenter comment le toucher peut ouvrir de nouvelles possibilités vocales.
- aux personnes intéressées par le Massage Sensitif qui veulent découvrir leur voix et l’enrichir.

Les stagiaires utiliseront leur voix en explorant des registres et des qualités vocales dans lesquels ils ne s’aventurent pas d’eux-mêmes. Ils développeront leur conscience corporelle et leur respiration. Ils feront l’apprentissage des mouvements de base du Massage Sensitif. Des exercices spécifiques qui permettent de donner plus de corps à la voix seront menés et les stagiaires travailleront sur leur voix individuellement et en collectif (plusieurs chants seront enseignés).

La libre expression vocale du Roy Hart Theatre et la libre expression corporelle que la personne développe en Massage Sensitif vont concourir au même but : une qualité de présence à soi et aux autres.

Pour la partie massage, les participants devront se munir de vêtements permettant le mouvement, ainsi que d’une serviette et d’un drap.
