The aim of the voice work is to free the actor from vocal limitation and develop the voice to its full potential. The first semester's work consists of learning a logical progression of breathing and voice exercises.
Parallel work on text connects thought, word, and voice with autobiographical storytelling, haiku and a variety of poetic texts. The work is based on Kristin Linklater’s revised and expanded 2006 edition of Freeing the Natural Voice: Imagery and Art in the Practice of Voice and Language (Drama Publishers).
