A celebration of the launch of Voice, a wide-ranging volume that explores the technical and physical aspects of voice as a craft, questioning its definitions, its historical presence, training practices and its publications.
Drawing on a wealth of experience, Jane Boston presents a selection of readings that demonstrate and contextualize some of the defining moments of voice throughout history. This clear and accessible text examines the relationship between voice and aesthetics and poetics, against the backdrop of class, race and gender politics, demonstrating how vocal training has been and still is inevitably connected to such issues.
After a decade as a senior voice tutor at RADA, Jane Boston is now a Principal Lecturer at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, leading the MA/MFA in Voice studies and heading up the International Network in Voice (INV).
