Acting and Vocal Techniques

Anna’s performer training is rooted in the Co-ordination Technique: a holistic approach to integrating song, text, body and imagination, developed by her with other members of Song of The Goat Theatre, and also draws upon her MSc research into the role that Mindfulness plays in modern performer training. Anna was Course Leader for the duration of the MA Acting at Song of the Goat Theatre.

Anna’s workshops nurture the artistic skills of participants, including; sensitive ‘listening’; working with the imaginative and expressive instincts of the body; embodying presence, confidence and readiness; finding internal connection and authentic relationships with other performers; singing, harmony and tuning; seeking integration of creative impulses, movement, song, text.

Anna is currently completing an MSc in Mindfulness at Aberdeen University and is researching ways to deepen her distinct ‘coordination technique’ for actor training.

Providing the opportunity to experience cultural and social diversity through festivals, conferences and educational projects the ‚Voices’ foundation aims to engender tolerance and and inspire women to create their own networks of support in order to be able to further help women in difficult and challenging circumstances.


mindfulness

Mindfulness is an innate capacity of the mind to be aware of the present moment in a non-judgmental way. It can be developed through systematic training and promotes a way of being that helps us to take better care of ourselves and others, and to lead healthier lives. It enables us to access inner resources for coping effectively with stress, difficulty and illness.

Anna is currently completing her MSc in Mindfulness at Aberdeen University, and is researching the ways in which Mindfulness practice can build strong and authentic onstage presence for performers through heightening self- awareness, allowing them to connect to their rich inner imaginative and emotional world and use this connection to inform their vocal expression. She is a tutor of the Mindfulness Association and is coordinating the work of the Association in Poland, offering training in Mindfulness for people from all walks of life.
