Women Finding Their Voice
Ruthanna Hooke leads a workshop especially for women on the Linklater method of voice production.
The Linklater voice progression seeks to undo habitual tensions that inhibit expression and awaken new connections in order to open and strengthen the voice / body / mind connection. The method aims to liberate the natural function of the vocal mechanism and has a rich use of imagery to stimulate the speaker’s imagination.
Participants are encouraged to bring with them a text (such as a poem, speech, passage of Scripture, or similar) they would like to speak. 10 - 15 lines maximum.
Ruthanna Hooke became a Designated Linklater Teacher in 1993. She is an ordained Episcopal priest, and received her PhD in Theology from Yale University. Her recent book, Transforming Preaching, explores the theological and practical implications of the Linklater voice approach for training preachers to more fully embody their proclamation. She teaches voice, performance of Biblical texts, and preaching to seminarians, clergy, and others interested in exploring and experiencing the ways that the freedom of breath and voice can connect us to the sacred.
