Directed by Kaya ANDERSON, Albino BIGNAMINI*, Anne HEEG & Saso VOLLMAIER* (pianist)

Price : 1050 € (teaching and lodging but no food)

We will work on the voice in characters and scenes, both humourous and dramatic, from Euripide ‘The Bacchae’ and other authors, in song, arias, poetry, stories and language. Please bring a chosen song and text learned by heart. The lessons include exercises and explorations of the voice, body, and breathing. These are based on the experience of many years of research, teaching, performing and directing in the Roy Hart Theatre and on techniques found in Yoga, Tai Chi, Chi Gong and other vocal and physical disciplines that aim to increase your capacity to achieve relaxation and tonicity, which are vital elements in singing, speaking, and reciting. The work includes individual and group lessons, improvisations with encouragement to develop these towards interpretation or to simply continue exploring. We will also do ensemble work on extracts from a play by Shakespeare and sing polyphonic songs of different countries. In addition there will be evenings of singing and presentation of work in progress, listening to audio/visual recordings and discussion of relevant experiences. This workshop is for you if you wish to improve and discover a wider range and more expressive voice in speaking and singing which you can use to enhance your all-round capacity to communicate and enjoy transforming and regenerating your voice, mind, and body.

28 Octobre - 1 Nov 2014Voix – Conte & Clown (Full)Agnès DUMOUCHEL & Marie GALLOT*register

Dirigé par Agnès DUMOUCHEL, conteuse dans les Hautes Alpes. Professeur de voix et comédienne du Roy Hart Théâtre. Co-anime des stages au Bataclown. Plus d’infos sur : www.agnes-dumouchel.com
& Marie GALLOT, comédienne et clown formée à l’animation d’atelier clown par le Bataclown a suivi des stages clown-acteur de Vincent Rouche de la Compagnie du Moment.
Travaille avec la Cie des Rivages de Toulouse et participe à des soirées improvisations Clown avec les MARIENEZ de la Cie du Morse dans le Tarn.

Nbre de participants : 12
Durée : 36 h
Prix : 540 €
Stage exclusivement en français

Objectif du stage : Travailler la voix et expérimenter l’enrichissement réciproque des spécificités du conte et du clown par des improvisations et exercices. D’une part, un apport d’imaginaire, de merveilleux, d’un fil narratif pour l’écriture du clown. De l’autre un apport de fantaisie, de poésie et d’émotion pour le récit du conteur. Chacun pourra ensuite selon son objectif faire servir le conte au clown ou le clown au conte.

Horaires et emploi du temps du stage : Le stage durera du mardi 28 octobre à 14 h au samedi 1er novembre à 22 h. Nous travaillerons tous les jours de mardi à vendredi de 14 h à 20 h avec deux temps exceptionnels.
Le samedi nous ferons une longue journée de 9 h à 22 h avec une pause pour déjeuner et un repas au restaurant pour finir le stage.
Mercredi de 10h à 12 h à Alès : Un événement hors les murs : Conférence de Marc Aubaret sur le thème « passage entre les mondes » et Visite du Centre Méditerranéen de Littérature Orale, où vous découvrirez les richesses du catalogue et des collections audio et vidéo. www.euroconte.org

Pré-requis : Expérience préalable en conte ou en clown souhaitée mais pas indispensable. Le conte et le clown peuvent être aussi des supports pour travailler la prise de parole en public.

Chaque participant doit venir avec :
- Un conte qui lui plait choisi dans ou hors de la thématique, d’une durée de 5 min à la lecture à voix haute.. Cette contrainte de 5 min permet à la fois de travailler sur un conte entier et d’éviter de trop longs temps d’écoute. Ce conte servira au travail collectif et il vaut mieux ne pas trop le travailler en amont.
- Une chanson sue par cœur (même approximativement) pour l’atelier clown.
- Il est préférable de venir avec son nez rouge.
Thématique indicative : La nuit du 31 octobre était chez les celtes la dernière nuit de l’année, une nuit de magie où les morts revenaient sur terre sous la forme d’esprits. Les revenants, les morts, le cimetière, le passage entre les mondes, les fées, toutes ces thématiques sont bienvenues pour choisir votre conte. Elles seront travaillées dans l’idée du trouble qu’elles inspirent ou de la peur qu’elles suscitent ou de la drôlerie qui s’en dégage. Si cette thématique ne vous inspire pas, vous pouvez librement choisir ce qui vous convient. L’important est que le conte choisi vous plaise.

Le Conte
Contenu de l’atelier « Conte» : échauffement corps et voix : relaxation, souplesse, imagination. timbres, projection, émotions, personnages. Trame narrative. Mise en scène de la parole.
Conter, c’est mettre son corps en scène, sa voix, ses gestes, dans le plus souvent, une absence de décors. C’est une présence théâtrale au plus près du quotidien. Comment « travailler » ce « naturel » ? Un naturel qui justement doit fabriquer du
merveilleux avec du « presque-rien » de mise en scène ? C’est ce que nous verrons.
Conter, c’est aussi accorder de l’importance qu texte pour qu’il présente la narration sans « sentir le papier ». C’est écrire de l’oral à partir de l’imprimé. C’est retrouver le rythme. C’est naviguer sur la crête du répété et de l’improvisé dans un équilibre virtuose et masqué. C’est ce que nous travaillerons.
Conter, c’est enfin accorder une attention toute particulière au public, le sentir, lui répondre. C’est quitter son conte un instant pour dialoguer et reprendre ensuite le fil de l’histoire pour le dérouler jusqu’à son terme en faisant vibrer la voix du conteur et celle de ses personnages. Nous nous y emploierons tout au long du travail vocal et du travail narratif.

Le Clown
Contenu de l’atelier « Clown » : échauffement collectif. improvisations clown avec nez, costumes et accessoires. passages solo, à deux et à plusieurs
Personnage tendre, poétique, affectif pour qui les émotions sont de vraies nourritures et l’imaginaire une aventure quotidienne. Cet être, vit en chacun de nous, il ne demande qu’à être éveillé, sollicité, pour venir nous rendre cette part d’enfance et d’humanité.

C’est à travers les jeux collectifs, corporels et les improvisations que nous le voyons surgir et retrouver toute sa vitalité, et sa générosité. Tenter cette aventure, c’est aller à la recherche de notre créativité, de nos rires, de nos fantaisies, pour les savourer et les donner.
Clown et conteur font face à des problèmes identiques : s’adresser directement au public, libérer une parole authentique, vivante, spontanée, s’adresser à la part d’enfance, celle qui en nous crée, divertit, jaillit, subvertit et met en ordre. Le clown ouvre la voie au conteur.

8 - 13 Juillet 2014River of Life: Signature Story – Telling for Business ProfessionalsIvan MIDDERIGHregister

Directed by Ivan MIDDERIGH

Hours : 36h (9h30–13h & 14h30-17h)
Participants : 12
Price : 540 €

“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.

Ivan Midderigh:

Hours : 36 h – Price : 490 € – Participants : 10 maximum
10 h – 13 h / 15 h 18 h
Level : beginner & intermediary

Roy Hart Voice Work is characterised by its non-judgemental way of exploring the voice as the phenomenon of human sounding. It has roots in the body, in movement and breathing, and also in the imagination, with its sense of structure in archetypes.

Noah Pikes will lead you along a creative path through these shared roots of the human voice, towards its branches and flowers found in the unique qualities of each individual voice, where the magic of speaking, singing, theatre and sound improvisations are to be found.
Many of the elements of The Human Voice workshops are included, as well as other elements drawn from the long research of RHT. Participants are encouraged to bring a memorised text and/or song with which to work.

Please send an email of motivation, including biographical information relevant to your voice, to e-mail

Follow your individual and deep rooted musical thread, for being expressed : your songline.

Our workshop will offer a research lab for this unheard music. How the different colours and shapes of your vocal expression could help your journey, will be part of the vocal training. The Pianist and Composer will accompany your voyage and give it a musical support or frame. Intense physical and vocal training at the beginning of the day will open the awareness and the readiness for your creative dive. Group improvisation and individual lessons will give playgrounds for the Material. A secure space at the final day will be offered to share your results.

(This workshop is open to all who have attended a Roy Hart voice workshop.) Content : The K’A of Love is an roaming cabaret – songs, texts, theatre, stage performances – is especially designed and tailored to Malerargues’s theatrical location and atmosphere. This fascinating “scene” is rich with personal and collective history; its rugged and also soothing surroundings inspire, spur and challenges our creativity. A creative and pleasurable experience, a polyphonic burst of languages geared to re-invent the world of the cabaret and its theatrical space. Le K’A OF LOVE/AMOUR/ AMOR/AMORE/LJUBAV/LIEBEN Dramaturgical play of languages around a universal theme The theme of both K’A will be LOVE, articulated in all its forms and manifestations, which will give us a wealth of texts and songs and will inspire unrestrained performances of both a comical and tragical nature. My interest in this journey is above all to integrate the languages that relate to the theme love in different musicality, rythms, colours, timber and imagination. In the singing repertory, different styles will meet in a kind of baroque melodrama that will go through the classical and contemporary repertories (songs, jazz and musicals, folk songs etc.) and will include personal compositions. We will used texts in the original language: a journey between classical writings and contemporary (theatrical repertory, poems, correspondence, literary extracts of different kinds), also including personal contributions. Participants’s skills will be taken into consideration during performances and improvisations. ********* Timetable First week – we will work on our repertory (texts, songs and performances) which will give us the main path for our playwriting/play acting.

The Evening: 17h30 to 20h30 –workshop: We will take the time to experience the stage – feel it with body and voice as a whole : personal interpretation of a song, or a text, or create a vocal work based on improvisation. Painting reproductions from the exhibition NY 2013, “Love, War and Exile” by Marc Chagall, will be a source for improvisation. Second week Afternoons : 14h00 – 17h00 Work in groups and individually. We will explore further the relationship between body and voice with regard to vocal techniques, imagination and improvisation. Individual singing lessons at the piano will follow. Evenings : 17h30 – 20h30 * A.

Directed by Ralf PETERS & Nuria INGLADA

Hours : 30 h (10 h – 13 h / 14 h 30 – 16 h 30) – Price : 405 € – Participants : 14
Level : beginer & intermediary

Voice and listening create a system in which both parts depend on each other. We can only do with our voices (i.e. repeat consciously) what we can really hear. Our voices and our listening have a history that influences our ability to sing and to hear. Listening means more than just a function of the ears. It involves “body and soul”!
In this workshop we will look for inspiration for our voices through listening to ourselves and to each other.
We will explore together, what listening means for you?
How do we use to listen?
How does listening change our way of singing?

22 - 27 Juillet 2014“Uniting Opposites” – Body and Voice Theatre LaboratoryMaryline GUITTON and Ezra KHAN *register

Directed by Maryline GUITTON & Ezra KHAN * (actor/martial & performing arts teacher)
Hours : 30 h (13h30-15h30 & 16h-19h)
Participants : 12
Price : 450 €
Intermediate and advanced level required.

To unite opposites, to allow hot and cold, the inner and the outer, the feminine and the masculine to meet, ‘opposites’ need to be explored first.
We shall be exploring them both physically and vocally.
- the physical preparation, run by Ezra, will open up the creative & imaginative body. It will include work inspired by the martial arts, Kundalini yoga, and Song of the Goat Theatre, as well as principles of the Enrique Pardo’s choreographic Pantheatre
- Maryline will train voice, working both on the singing and spoken voice. Her vast experience with Roy Hart’s vocal work, as well as in lyrical, jazz, and impro work, with masters such as Joelle Léandre and Phil Minton, informs her teaching which aims to guide the voice towards free singing improvisation.
- Theatrical exploration of ‘The Song of Songs’.

Mixing text, improvised singing and chorus work, participants will be part of a body-voice laboratory, inspired by the Choreographic Theatre of Enrique Pardo. Participants will be asked to learn an extract of their choice from ‘The Song of Songs’, in their own language. This text, which is both sacred and profane, deals with the union between a man and a woman. It can also be read as a Jungian approach to the union of the masculine and feminine psyches. The text will be a starting point on a journey through the themes of intimacy, pleasure, joy, shadow, and the search for meaning and self-understanding.

For those interested, late-morning meditation will take place outdoors (if weather permits).

Bilingual (french and english).

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 woods and strings, pierces and radiates through us. Bringing these two elements together in a workshop is not just an empty 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, an essential and éloquent partner.

10 - 15 Juin 2014Personal 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 : 12
Price : 490 €

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.

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.

Hours : 36 h
Price : 540 €
Number maximum of participants : 12

Song interpretation means also freeing the material from any kind of preconceived standards. How to find a deep way towards your own interpretation will be the focus of this workshop, using both words and music as gateways towards your personal style of exploring the material, and including variation and improvisation.
We would like to find out how far wildness and tameness of your voice will produce a very personal and special version.
Besides physical preparation – especially for breath and sound – , daily work will comprise phrasing/rhythm, improvisational exercises and games, presence and performance.

Susanne and Anne will suggest a selection of jazz-related songs to work on, but you are welcome to bring your own (please get in touch with us beforehand).
*Jazz singer Anne Hartkamp has been in close touch with the Roy Hart Theatre work for 15 years, since her participation in her first seminars with Paul & Clara Silber. She is one of the better known singers on the German jazz scene with a number of CDs to her name, including some as a composer and band leader. Apart from her intense song interpretations, her trademark is a playful, instrumental and improvisational approach to the voice.

Participants : 12
Level : beginner & intermediate

Roy Hart Voice Work is characterised by its non-judgemental way of exploring the voice as the phenomenon of human sounding. It has roots in the body, in movement and breathing, and also in the imagination, with its sense of structure in archetypes. We will explore this structure in detail, then use it in vocal improvisations and play.
You will be led along a creative path through these shared roots of the human voice, towards its branches and flowers found in the unique qualities of each individual voice, where the magic of speaking, singing, theatre and sound improvisations are to be found.
Many of the elements of The Human Voice workshops are included, as well as other elements drawn from the long research of RHT. Participants are encouraged to bring a memorised text and/or song with which to work.
Please send an email of motivation, including biographical information relevant to your voice, to e-mail
