Developing and freeing your natural voice with Daniel Lovett
4, 11, 18 & 25 January
Kristin Linklater was a world renowned vocal teacher who sadly passed away in June 2020. She could include the likes of Sir Patrick Stewart and Bill Murray amongst her most famous students!
In homage to Linklater these voice workshops will be chiefly associated to the her work , encouraging throughout the sessions the development of a more open, free and natural voice. A panoramic range of techniques will be explored focusing on the improvement of articulation, diction, sound vocal warm-up practice to sustain performance and the ability to find the dramatic intention in text.
In addition these workshops are aimed at helping actors understand and apply sound performance practice when working with the voice in relation to the industry as a whole, with opportunities to work with others and develop self reflection in their practice.

ACTION/REACTION with Andrew Allen
1, 8, 15, 22 & 29 March
How do we tell stories? What's the difference between performing a play and simply reciting lines? How can we successfully bring our own energy and charisma to the stage (and zoom screen)? How can we share the energy of our fellow cast members?
In a series of workshops over the five Mondays of March 2021, Cast Iron Theatre's Andrew Allen (ART, THE CRUCIBLE, KVETCH), delivers exciting improv and devising exercises, focussed script work, and dynamic group games to develop the tools for any performer to feel their most empowered in audition, rehearsal and performance.
Andrew Allen is an experienced director, actor, playwright and workshop leader. He has written and directed FOUR PLAY and THE SNOW QUEEN for the New Venture Theatre, and YEAR WITHOUT SUMMER and ONE WOMAN ALIEN for the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringes. He is a founder of IRONCLAD CREATIVE, an online community for performing arts creatives, and CAST IRON THEATRE, the home of new writing for the stage in Brighton.
