Theresa Sølvsteen
Teaches: drama and stage presence


Theresa Sølvsteen was trained as an actor at the Danish National School of Performing Arts, the Aarhus campus, and she has many years' experience using her voice professionally. She was certified as a singing and voice teacher in the Anne Rosing Method in 2018.
 

In her lessons, Theresa's focus is on grain and authenticity in the voice function as well as in conveyance, two sides she believes to be incontrovertibly linked. Here, she also draws from her master classes with prominent voice coach Patsy Rodenburg. Her goal is to collaborate with the student in making the voice, body and mind work freely by clarifying and examining the habits and filters which veil the expression.
 

She utilises the anatomically based manual treatment of the singing body to relieve tensions and construct a healthy voice function, both acutely and over extended periods.

Theresa successfully treats professional actors and singers, and she regularly teaches courses at the Anne Rosing Institute where her classes on text work, conveyance and stage presence are popular among the participants.


She had her début at Aarhus Theatre as part of the regular cast of Christian Lollike's success play "Det Normale Liv", which also played at Caféteatret in Copenhagen.
She then performed in a theatre concert with Leonard Cohen songs which – in addition to Aarhus Theatre –also played at Aveny-T in Copenhagen. She played Varja in "The Cherry Orchard", Cécile de Volange in "Dangerous Liaisons", and she performed in the début adaptation of Josefine Klougart's "Hallerne".

 

On the minor stages, she has acted in "Ravna og den store Viking" and "The Nutcracker" at Teatret Masken, "Orla Frøsnapper" at the Open Air Museum's permanent theatre stage and "Hva' tror du selv" with Teateriet Apropos.

As a dubber, she has voiced different characters in the cartoons "The Lion Guard", "Kulipari" (Netflix), "Cars 3", "Finding Dory" and "Star Darlings", and she has read the audio version of "Killjoy Manifest" by Sara Ahmed for Lindhardt & Ringhof publishers.
