A brilliant day of working with the Voice & Movement both technically and playfully, offering vital and visceral insights into the importance of voice and movement on an actor’s craft. Through strengthening both, you can unlock the true power and potential of your acting.
It may seem obvious how important it is to work on your voice, but there is so much more than just being audible that goes into the work of an actor. By working on your breath, you can open the action and text of a scene in new and exciting ways; by unlocking your diaphragm, you can reclaim the power you’ve had to communicate since birth.
We have been in motion since the dawn of time. Starting with your own body, you learn how to explore the character; focusing on stance, flow, and movement, this workshop will introduce you to your body in entirely new ways, which will unlock greater flexibility of a richer and more nuanced work with the role in the text.
