The Voice Work

get to know your voice

Lisa has been a professional actor since 1992. Her career led her to play on the stages of The Shaw Festival, Atlantic Theatre Festival, Chemainus Theatre Festival, Manitoba Theatre Centre. She has a deep respect for the process of rehearsal and performance. So much so, that it led her to learn how to guide and support students in their quest to be professional performers.

The Voice Work is inspired by many folk, including Kirsten Linklater's 'Freeing The Natural Voice' teachings, meditation and mindfulness studies, a basic understanding of skeletal, muscular and vocal anatomy, Richard Pochinko's Baby Clown training, as well as, Alisa Kort and the Breath Experience.

Lisa's training includes BFA Acting from UBC and an MFA Acting from York University; The Royal Conservatory Artist-Educator Foundations Course; The Month Long Intensive at Shakespeare&Co; National Voice Intensive; The International Voice Intensive with Richard Armstrong at The Banff Centre; Baby Clown with John Turner; 200hr YYoga Certification, Yin Yoga certification.
