Richard Armstrong, world renowned performer, director, and teacher, will be conducting a workshop on the Roy Hart Technique and extended voice at the Wertheim Performing Arts Center on November 21-23, 2014. His workshop will include vocal training for theatre students as well as professional development sessions with Department of Theatre faculty. He will focus on exploring range and character and emphasizes proper use of breath, body alignment, and physical grounding.
In addition to being a musical theatre faculty member of the exclusive Banff Centre in Canada, Mr. Armstrong offers workshops and demonstrations nationally and internationally on a regular basis. He was instrumental in establishing one of Europe’s most influential schools of voice and research, The Roy Hart Theatre in France. Needless to say, the Department of Theatre is extremely pleased to have someone of his caliber facilitating this workshop at the university.
FIU Theatre Department faculty member Rebecca Covey worked with Mr. Armstrong several years ago and remained in contact with him. When she learned that he was on sabbatical from New York University’s Experimental Theater Wing at the Tisch School of the Arts, where he is currently an Associate Arts Professor, she seized the opportunity to invite him to share his talent and expertize with the faculty and staff of the Theatre Department.
