SHORT COURSE: Clown and Voice

SHORT COURSE: Clown and Voice

'An essential course for grounding your experience of clowning' with David Goldsworthy and Vivian Gladwell.

Through our voice, we deepen our clown’s emotional commitment to life and we create out of thin air the images and stories that make up our identity and our lives.

Join us on this powerful journey of discovery.

The group is limited to 12.

ALL WELCOME

David Goldsworthy

David Goldsworthy joined ROY HART in 1969 and was director of the Roy Hart Centre in France for many years. The central elements of his teaching is to free the voice through exploration and improvisation.

“I believe that voice teaching is a way of meeting, of exchanging and of mutual learning. In my view there are no good or bad singers! Vocal virtuosity is not the ultimate aim of the work. It is important not only to develop the voice, but also to develop oneself through the voice. In order to evolve vocally and artistically I believe it is necessary to make friends with one’s weaknesses and to integrate the physical and mental disciplines which give freedom to the imagination and to creative expression.”

David Goldsworthy was born in Newcastle 1945. He always loved music (especially jazz and blues, folk singing, rock and roll!), but studied engineering at Manchester University (where he sang and played sax and harmonica in a blues band). He wanted to become a photographer and worked for 2 years in the oil fields of the North Sea and in Libya to earn the necessary money to continue studying. At the same time as he began photography, he met the Roy Hart Theatre, and his life changed radically. He became totally engaged with the RHT, the voice work, theatre, and the life of the group. He has lived for the past 48 years focussing on the development and transmission of the vocal and theatrical work of the RHT in France and abroad.

David worked with Roy Hart, Robert Harvey, Richard Armstrong, Elisabeth Mayer, Marita Gunther, Derek Rossignol

He speaks English and French.

Nose To Nose

Emerson College Education Partners, Nose To Nose, run clowning workshops in France, Germany, Italy and North America and Online as well as in the UK here at Emerson College.

'Created in 1990, Nose to Nose brings together our diverse experiences in the fields of theatre, community building, teaching, storytelling, play therapy, counselling, Special Needs and organisational consultancy. 

As facilitators, we believe we stay true to the spirit of clowning when we flow with the creative process of each person, when we nurture its emotional expression and the emergence of the imagination and when we facilitate and free actors to find their own clown, unique and grounded in their relationship to the audience.

By focusing on the individual we go straight to the heart of clowning, which is the search for authenticity both in the social or personal dimensions of our lives.' - Vivian Gladwell
