Working with the evidence provided by the remarkable discovery of King Richard III’s skeleton in 2012, Yvonne Morley-Chisholm, a well-known voice teacher and vocal coach, will discuss her ongoing research into how the fabled monarch might have sounded. Her research draws on many disciplines, including craniotomy-facial reconstruction, graphology, forensic sciences, dentistry, cultural history and genetics. The presentation will also include a demonstration by Tim Charrington of original medieval pronunciation.
Yvonne works in theatre, film and television, and with voice-over artists. She has trained actors, dancers and singers. As a voice and text coach, she is an associate of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Shakespeare’s Globe and the National Theatre.
Tim has extensive experience as an actor, a freelance accent and dialect coach, and a voice instructor at (amongst others) Drama Centre, LAMDA and Webber-Douglas.
Yvonne and her team form a not-for-profit research consortium. The heritage elements of the work itself promises to become a lasting legacy for the wider public and is being described as the new science of historical human reconstruction by FaceLab and others involved. The team is currently on a fundraising tour to pay for the state-of-the-art technology involved. You are invited to be part of that should you so choose.
