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.
In this book accredited teacher Karin Rudfeldt explores her life-long work with the voice and the spoken word; primarily from the perspective of a teacher and in her role as assistant professor of Voice and Speech at the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts, but also as a musician and poet.
The book looks at voice and language in relation to characterisation and the creative process and seeks to find the connection between that which flows and that which binds, the link between chaos and order.
