Organised and produced by the Centre for Performance Research, Giving Voice explores the voice through a series of themed meetings during which there are workshops, lecture demonstrations, discussions and performances and sometimes a symposium.
These have usually taken place in April biennially and attract a wide range of participants from the performing arts but also from voice therapy, laryngology, teaching, linguistics, communication studies etc. as well as the general public. Despite an increasing focus on the ‘visual’ in contemporary theatre and performance practice, there is a growing interest in the performance body being ‘all ears’ (listening, receiving, sourcing), working beyond ‘the tyranny of the eye’ and within the notion that ‘the voice is the muscle of the soul’.
We have produced marketing material for the festival since 2008 including posters, brochures and the festival website.
