For me, the philosophy of the Roy Hart work begins with Alfred Wolfsohn. His lifework inspired us to find a new world. The soul of singing, the music in each one of us, needs careful listening, observation and empathy: these are my hard worked-for aims.

Kaya is a founding member of the Roy Hart Theatre. Her longing to find a context with people who believe deeply in the essential divinity of singing, theatre, dance and the other arts began some years before she found it with Alfred Wolfsohn and Roy Hart in 1956.

At that time, pupils would attend meetings to hear about dreams, projects, successes and failures, with the precise intention of raising the level of their humanity and responsibility for voice and behavior; to receive individual singing lessons, rehearse performances, research the connections between voice and personality, and invite professional people in the arts and sciences to listen and observe their work.

Kaya never stopped performing or teaching, adding influences from music, theatre, Chi Gong, Tai Chi, Yoga and dance to the experience she acquired with Alfred and Roy.

Kaya Anderson has trained with Alfred Wolfsohn and Roy Hart.
She speaks English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.
