This is a course for actors, theatre makers, voice teachers, and others who are interested in a deeper study of Kristin Linklater's voice method.

This course is the only postgraduate program in the world that takes candidates through a course of study that culminates in their receiving Designated Linklater Teacher status along with the MFA degree.

A deep dive into the Linklater Voice method is the foundation of the MFA. The program was designed in close collaboration with Ms. Linklater and reflects her ideas of what a twenty-first-century postgraduate course for actor-teachers should look like. It is, in part, a voice-centred actor-training, rooted in Linklater’s approach to voice as fundamental to a whole system.

Acknowledging the changing worlds of the industry and traditional actor training, this course is designed for those who wish to develop their skills further. In a practical sense, the course provides graduates with both needed skills and necessary credentials for future employment. The training will enable graduates to enter new creative roles with confidence, ethical preparation, and authority.

Why choose this course?

Practice-based learning

Teaching methods include intensive coursework and one public performance. Cohorts are small, and students receive a great deal of rigorous instruction in both individual and group settings.

Multidisciplinary structure

Alongside Linklater Voice, students will study three complementary disciplines. Trish Arnold's 'Pure Movement,' Michael Chekhov' psycho-physical Acting techniques, and the Applied Theatre techniques of Augusto Boal, known as Theatre of the Oppressed.

Professional Preparation

Observation placements, which may include assisting, with a Designated Linklater Teacher and ample practice-teaching opportunities are provided in Voice, along with placements with Applied Theatre/Social Justice organizations. Recognized leaders in the field work with students during their second year. Forums and workshops on related topics ensure that graduates are prepared to enter the profession.
