Just to say, the workshop at Watford Theatre for the Royal Literary Fund was brilliant. I am still fizzing with excitement. I have been on many courses in my time but never have I come away so fired up and raring to go as I did after Clare Kissane's Voice workshop. The activities were enormous fun and really helped improve my delivery. She had a wonderful way of dispersing fears and self-consciousness and working her magic on all the participants. Brilliant!
Thanks for the fun, engaging and informative training day (Expert Readers Day). You had a way of putting everyone at ease and encouraging us all to try new things and to explore new possibilities. I had a brilliant time and the activities you provided were really helpful!
The exercises you taught are proving very useful and it was fascinating to observe how it's possible to use one's voice to create very disparate characters simply by use of breath, and utilising different parts of the mouth.
I would definitely recommend your workshop to anyone who wants to learn about performance. This workshop could be useful for someone wanting to gain confidence in public speaking, bring character to their own reading in group situations, possibly even as a spur into acting itself. Thank you Clare.
Clare's relaxed 'fun' style made us all drop our inhibitions immediately. The voice exercises were interesting and accessible, particularly the emphasis on 'how to breathe'. Clare's individual feedback was also really helpful; she created a lovely balance of secure group dynamics in an atmosphere of trust, so that the focus on individual feedback was both constructive and enlightening
Clare has worked for Interact for over ten years, progressing from basic roleplaying by attending training Interact gives to freelance creative associates in: Evidence Based Feedback. Coaching Skills, and Running a Breakout Group, and developing her skills as a Coach and Trainer.
