    “Roy Hart”, a book by Kevin Crawford and Bernadette Sweeney

Roy Hart’s revolutionary work on the human voice through extended vocal technique and the Wolfsohn-Hart tradition has influenced several generations of practitioners.

Hart’s outstanding contribution to vocal research, practice and performance stretched over twenty years until his untimely death in 1975, and his vocal training produced performers with extraordinary and highly expressive vocal ranges.

The book, titled Roy Hart, combines:

  • A detailed biography giving the social and artistic context of Hart’s work and that of the early Roy Hart Theatre ;
  • An exploration of Hart’s own writings on his work, combined with a review of articles by his wife Dorothy Hart and in-depth interviews ;
  • A stylistic analysis of his key works, including “The Bacchae”, “L’Economiste”, “and”, “Biodrame”, and their critical reception ;
  • Pathways into some of the practical exercises devised by close collaborators of Roy Hart and teachers in the Roy Hart Theatre Tradition.
