Singing Techniques for: Actors, Performers and Singers

April 13, 2020 - April 18, 2020
  • This event has passed.

Two unique techniques for the stage will meet at this workshop. Participants will cover some effective training elements of the Werbeck Technique to enable a free voice for singing. Werbeck exercises covered will be invaluable to your on-going personal training. The Chekhov Technique will work with imagination and psychological gesture to support a free and fluid interpretation of the songs.

Olga Gorodkova (Singer, Director of ASAI) &
Joerg Andrees (Theatre/Film Director, Director of MCIA)

It seems like a parallel journey: almost at the same time, while M.Chekhov was developing his acting technique,  V.Werbeck-Svärdström was developing her unique technique for healthy singing and unveiling the human voice.
Both techniques – V.Werbeck’s and M.Chekhov’s – are based on the same background. Their knowledge and search for deeper understanding of the human being and the artistic tools that helped them to create their practical approach for their art.

This Workshop will introduce the actor/performer/singer to the basic tools for the understanding of the free voice for singing. Some of the exercises and training elements of the Werbeck Technique will be studied and prepared for further individual use. Specific applied elements of the Chekhov Technique will support the actor/singer with the aim to create a  free and fluid interpretation of their songs. Among other things the work with Imagination and Psychological Gesture will be applied to singing.

The workshop will have two parts:
1st part will be working in a group for basic training (Voice and Acting Technique) and the 2nd part will be for individual work on a song (both Voice and Interpretation).
Please bring 2 songs you already had or would like to work on (with the written music and text), please bring written music even if you can’t sing from it.

Limited to 12 people.
