Stromboli Voice Project
Stromboli Project started in 2005, when the vocal coach Kristin Linklater and Alessandro Fabrizi met on the Island of Stromboli with 15 actors, and explored the potentials of the “natural voice” directly connected with the setting of Stromboli. Since that year, in collaboration with Susan Main, the group continued the research working during annual workshops open to professional actors from all over the world lead by internationally known acting teachers such as Kristin Linklater, Natsuko Ohama, Merry Conway, Susan Main, Ragnar Freidank, Alessandro Fabrizi, Paula Langton, Ken Cheeseman, Nuria Castano Gutierrez, Giorgio Rossi and Oiiver Mannel. Stromboli Project is a space for training, research and production opened to performance of classical text, often coming from the classical tradition of myths collected in Ovid's Metamorphoses. The program is international and interdisciplinary and focuses on the exploration of relationship between body and mind when human voice communicates thoughts, feelings and emotions of a story.

Linklater Voice takes you through a series of step-by-step practical exercises that include relaxation, awareness of breathing, the experience of voice vibrating in the body, how to open the throat, the development of resonance and range, and the articulating activity of lips and tongue. As you awaken your voice consciousness you will discover the expressive potential of the human voice and release your own eloquence. This is primarily speaking voice work - but the singing voice also benefits enormously from the focus on free breathing, resonance and the release of tongue and jaw tension. We use our voices all day long: in the home, the workplace, outdoors, for fun and for profit. The voice is deeply personal and Linklater workshops offer ways to free the voice from inhibitory tensions that may have become habits of constriction that limit the range and pleasure of verbal communication. These workshops are open to people from all walks of life whether they are involved in professional performance in theatre, business, legal affairs, story-telling, the ministry, social action, poetry, song or day-to-day life. Designated Linklater Teachers have undergone her lengthy and rigorous teacher training programme and have many years of teaching experience behind them.
