- SELF EXPRESSION
Dramaturge, actor, speech therapist
Lives in Aarhus, Denmark
Roy Hart Voice Teacher since 2014
The voice work gives people a chance to connect and to express without the logic of spoken dialogue. It offers a relief from daily life conventions and conversations. In the sphere of non-logic, in the aesthetic approach, it is possible to be in the here and now, in the moment, in the body. That is why improvisation is the key word for me as a teacher whether it is done within a frame of words, movement or sound. It is a way into the emotions, musicality and the imagination. As you improvise you listen to yourself, and at the same time you listen to the people and the space around you. For me improvisation is symbolic of being a human being, because it expresses a dialogue between the internal and the external world. The humanity of this work is what touches me the most when I teach.
