In 2013, this film was officially selected for Guth Gafa, Nordic Film Days (Lubeck, Germany), Vilnius International Film Festival and received a Mark of Distinction from New York City Indie Film Festival. This year, it has been officially selected for Dingle International Film Festival.

The screening will be followed by a Q & A with Mark Byrne.

17th – 21st February (5 Day Worskshop) The Gaiety School of Acting - Lessac Kinesenic Voice and Body Workshop with Robin Carr 
Go »

This 5 day workshop is specifically designed for those interested in experiencing stronger, more resonant vocal quality with ease, in conjunction with creating more physical flexibility, strength and expressive body movement. Lessac Kinesensic Training is unique in its holistic, comprehensive and creative approach to all aspects of developing the body and the voice, for speech and singing and as creative instruments of communication, behavior and perception. Kinesensic training is a self-teaching, sensory-based process based on feeling the way the human body functions naturally when it is free of adverse conditioning. It then uses those physical sensations to identify, produce and voluntarily control the voice and body. This training is beneficial for actors, singers, directors, barristers, presenters, business people. A daily schedule would be full of instruction with appropriate breaks within that time frame.

Participants of the Lessac Kinesensic Voice and Body Training will expect to learn:
• Posture and breathing
• Breath support and breath control
• Body energy and flexibility
• Body conditioning and physical fitness
• Body characterization
• Vocal variety and contrast
• Text interpretation
• Development of full dynamic pitch range
• Control of projection for stage, microphone, and personal use in intimate, social, or formal situations
• Development of the male and female voices for speech and singing
• Connecting physical and vocal life to the emotional experiencing system

Robin Carr is an Associate Professor of Voice and Acting in the Department of Theatre and Dance at the University of Southern Mississippi. Ms. Carr is a Lessac Certified Trainer, one of only twenty five in the world. She is currently a board member for the International Lessac Training and Research Institute. Robin was fortunate enough to teach a one week workshop with Arthur Lessac himself at the University of Rijeka in Croatia and taught the Lessac voice and body work for their new Post Masters’ Program in Acting, Media and Culture Studies under the direction of International Hollywood Star, Rade Serbedzija.
