« Roy Hart en Personne »
Theme des séminaires et master classes 2023

Il y a peu, une stagiaire au Centre Roy Hart (prononcé à la française: rhoyart) était sidérée par le fait qu’il s’agissait d’un homme, d’une personne. J’en ai conclu à la répression du nom, des idées et du génie (certes, pas commode) de Roy Hart (né Ruben Hartstein). Je serai son avocat – sans nécessairement être d’accord sur tout, (cinquante ans plus tard tout de même !) EP

En prélude à la Master du dimanche 22 janvier à 17h. INFORMATION

Covid at a performance:
the director personally squeezed the public in…

… so we got it, third time. Covid is now down to a debilitating flu. It was a very scary PANdemic when it broke out, and it took a toll of millions. Pharma-technology managed to subdue it in 18 months, which I see as a momentous achievement for humanity. I.e. technology can now control animal Pan-enemies. (Though not much deadlier human enmities.) So, we just passed into being EIGHT BILLION humans… I am writing on « Pan, Animals and Performance », and started checking scientific prospects for animals: glum, with mostly rats, rodents and roaches surviving… and humans.


Pantheatre is the organizational umbrella for the artistic and cultural projects of its two directors: Enrique Pardo and Linda Wise – with a wide circle of artists and teachers.

A context for

·     performance research and devising
·     voice training (including Roy Hart)
·     cultural and archetypal studies

Based in France :

·     Studio DTM, Paris 11 : Oct. to Mar.
·     Malerargues, Southern France, Roy Hart Centre. April to Sept.

International workshops and long-term programs, on-site and online: Chile, Sao Paolo, Mexico, Madrid, Italy, New York.

The Work

Main areas:

  1. Voice performance
  2. Singing and Interpretation
  3. Choreographic Theatre
  4. Cultural Studies
  5. Training of Roy Hart Voice Teachers

The work is done on site and online, in intensive workshops, regular ateliers, master classes, seminars, individual classes and personal tutoring – which can be combined in long term training programs.

Four historical influences:

  1. Roy Hart’s voice practice and philosophy.
  2. James Hillman’s archetypal psychology and ideas.
  3. The laboratory legacy of Jerzy Grotowski and Eugenio Barba.
  4. Peers and contemporary philosophers.

Why Who

The aim is for each person, artist and/or teacher, to make the work their own, integrating psychological, critical and cultural studies.

No dogma: “Rules are made to confirm exceptions”.

Workshops, courses, tutoring are both advanced AND open to all. More a question of attitude, personality and risk-taking than of technical, musical or performance skills – all very welcome!

For many, it amounts to a hands-on post-doctorate. Dancers who want to include voice and text performance. Singers wishing to include extended voice ranges and movement performance. Psychotherapists, or anyone, wishing to explore the modes and implications of artistic ‘acting out’.

A School of Genius. Our ambition: “The affirmation of personal genius – character and musicality – with a radical commitment to what one has to voice.”
