    As one of the builders of Malérargues, for the past 41 years, for me, it is a place of many, many meetings with all the people who come here. Our inspiration for rebuilding Malérargues comes from our own singing and theatre and dance careers.

    Malérargues is a safe place for letting the voice turn the soul inside out, touching secret memories hidden in the body and give them rhythm, music and meaning.

    When I truly sound, my real whole-range voice, ‘I’ cease to exist: all the voices of judgement, classification, evaluation… disappear and I’m truly one with the world.

    It is in singing that all my ‘selves’ meet together. When I sing I become a potter, architect, film maker, craft moulder and shaper. I enter into the material and little by little it takes form until it becomes unique, makes me unique. I am at the same both the material and the creator.

    Singing for me means to live more fully. It also means using my energy and my thoughts to be able to grow, besides singing songs which can enrich my life, and even inventing new songs as I am now.

    The voice for me is a necessity deeper than speech and beyond song. It is a return to the raw material of the voice, a subterranean and atavistic space rarely touched on in art.

    Feeling our voice is something wonderful. It is to live and to revive, to create and recreate, to give and to receive of ourselves, of others and things. A fantastic new world that opens its discovery every day and every moment.

    „Singing“ is an inclusive term for me that covers any action that involves vocal expression. It is inclusive in the sense that it seeks to renegotiate our perceptions both of ourselves and others. Its primary aim is one of communcation on all levels.

    Singing in Malérargues means expanding one’s sound body, freeing the inner being, taming the unknown. It is an encounter with oneself and an encounter with others.

    The voice work of Alfred Wolfsohn and Roy Hart and my development of their work is to do with the development of the individual. To be able to discover who you are through the voice and to stand in yourself with your own unique voice. Then to work with this on a high human and artistic level.

    Singing is not just a question of vocal technique. It is a dynamic artistic and human process, an opening to oneself and the world - an intensive work which involves effort, discipline, humility and the capacity to look and listen.

    Voice and mood are closely linked. A fearful voice sounds different from an excited, young, old, in love or angry voice. However, all have their place and the division into "beautiful" and "ugly" loses its importance.
  • Walli Höfinger

    Singing is a way to connect through the voice. Listen with the soul into the body – or with the body into the soul. The voice makes it all audible.

    To discover our different voices is to discover the way of life! Body and voice together help discover the real verticality of the human: going beyond the limits allows the richness of inner musicality to express oneself with authenticity.

    The heart, soul, and body hunger for deep expressions – of joy, yearning, grief, ecstasy, pain, uncertainty, purpose. This vocal journey thrives on listening, searching, play, risk and ultimately, the discovery of form and ease.

    Our voices are very much bigger than we think, certainly bigger than we normally use, and that there is a profound connection between our voice and our self, which is in turn very much bigger than we realise or normally admit to. The voice is more than sounds produced by the larynx and resonated in the head; the expression, the beauty and the quality that makes us want to listen comes from the body, the heart, the stomach, the genitals, even the knees, and from the soul.

    Singing is to recognise myself, to reveal and discover myself in the moment. Singing connects me with something bigger than myself, it makes my bones resonate and my breath awaken. Singing is to welcome the voices of the moment and to set off on a journey towards the unknown.

    The quality of listening I have found in Malérargues is the most sensitive I have ever experienced, without any kind of judgement or expectation. Malérargues is the place where you can accept your vulnerability and find the power of your voice.

    Singing, as defined by Alfred Wolfsohn and Roy Hart, is an extraordinary idealistic and demanding proposal – I am especially interested in its Talmudic backdrop. Protestant enthusiasm often takes over: its cult is also called singing. This, from a baroque, neopagan ‘goy’.

    I follow my intuition in the moment, based on what I perceive to be the need of each student's unique voice. I guide people to connect with their creative impulses, accepting the sound “just as it is," and expressing what their voices have to say.

    „Learning how to sing is learning how to love.“ Alfred Wolfsohn. Because (one possible interpretation): it is about touch, about contact, about being together. Be in contact with your body, your mind, your soul, be in touch with the world, space, time, the others! Listen, welcome everything! Let your voice be free. And maybe the most important for artists: be in contact with your lack of contact. Go into it, listen and love it!

    "Singing" for me, following the particular way Wolfsohn and Hart used that word, is a way of exploring and developing the depths of your own personal connection with your voice.

    Singing happens when a person’s whole body, senses and imagination are totally engaged in creating vocal sound, whilst focusing on a given note, image or word. This requires many hours of dedicated work with a teacher who is able to sing.

    In order to soar up into the sky we need a strong grip on the ground, good energy, a lot of confidence, relaxation and vigour, full openess and imagination. ... to go further into space and at the same time closer to oneself so that the whole human being finds freedom and joy in an authentic, artistic vocal act.

    “ Singing“ allows me to dynamically explore many different qualities of sound, some of them quite extreme, so that with time my capacity to express myself both as a singer and as a human being is enhanced. More in touch with myself and my voice I can be more in touch with others.

    My voice-body work is practical, the fruit of my experience as a singer, actress, and teacher, applying what I learnt from Roy and Dorothy and with fellow-pupils and teachers since 1964. My voice comes from my whole body: this means I move « every joints »  while inviting voice to come in on the out-breath, as it wants. This is my warm-up and pre- rehearsal.

    Singing is breath moved by feeling when words no longer hold their meaning ... and given time, singing moves life into greater meaning especially as the world loses touch with its feeling.

    Awe says in the video of his lesson to Roy - « more body » this is the Key to the work. Everyone thinks they have a body, but in reality they only have a head. What does the ear hear when there is more body? The answer to this takes time and care.

    Malérargues is my second home. When I think of it, I remember sharing deep times with my dear friends Robert, Marita, Jonathan. It is the navel of the world, the mother-house of this really unique and beautiful exploration of the voice and being.

    Malérargues was built on a dream of a remarkable man, Roy Hart, and some exceptional people who worked with him. The capacity of a generation of actor/singers to say „yes“ and to hold to this undefined vision in the face of tragedy continues to challenge the historians and myth makers.
