Growing Voices ed Ros Steen

It is over 25 years since Nadine’s voice work was first introduced to the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and to Scottish Theatre. Since then, the work has been developed and researched within performance training as well as professional theatre productions. This has resulted in creating a significant impact on rehearsal performance practice, the role of the voice specialist in production and on the application of the vocal work to directors, the direction process, and new writing. The work became the core vocal practice in the Conservatoire’s School of Drama in 2006, when Professor Ros Steen established the Centre for Voice in Performance, CViP.

Growing Voices charts the growth and development of the work’s impact on training and the profession through a range of responses from directors, voice practitioners, playwrights, actors, staff and students, who speak in their individual voices about their relationship to the work.

This publication from the Conservatoire’s Centre for Voice in Performance is a testament to the profound impact of Nadine and her work:

‘…the technique opened a whole new thing which has been amazing – the voice, the communication, the vibration and resonance and the energies.’ John Tiffany, Director (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Black Watch, Once)

‘…thank you [CViP] for all that you did over the years to ensure we were able to have the best experience possible in voice. I will cherish our masterclass with Nadine George for a very long time to come. ‘ Contemporary Performance Practice student, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, 2018.

A.L.Kennedy and Ros Steen look at NGVW’s connection with writing at the Akademie der Künste in Berlin!

On Wednesday 8th June,2019, the writer A.L.Kennedy and Ros Steen were both invited to give a joint presentation to members of the Akademie der Künste in Berlin about the connection between NGVW and writing. A short contextual introduction by Ros was followed by a practical demonstration. Kennedy, who had written four new pieces for the occasion each one linked to one of the Four Qualities, spoke each piece before and after working on her voice with Ros. She also spoke from a personal point of view about the voice work. A lively question and answer session followed and the whole evening was recorded for the Akademie’s archives. The event was also attended by accredited teacher Margareta Unné (Teta). While in Berlin, Teta and Ros paid a visit to do some research into Alfred Wolfsohn’s archive which is held by the Jewish Museum in Berlin.

VSI connects with Common Wealth

Ros Steen led a voice research and development day for the directors and producer of Common Wealth, a Bradford-based company specialising in site-specific events. ‘Our ideas are rooted in socialist politics, working-class backgrounds, a keen interest in contemporary music/theatre/art/design, the people that we meet and an idealistic ambition to shift things.’

Yesterday was extraordinary, we all felt it very strongly and deeply and are so grateful to you. (Co-director Evie Manning)

Literally, life changing – I’m breathing deeper, clearer and listening better. It’s amazing. (Co-director Rhiannon White)
