Session 1 (25 July): Unlocking the expressive potential of the voice
Participants will be introduced to a variety of practical text-based exercises to unlock the expressive range of the spoken voice, and guided through techniques for keeping the voice alive, vital, and connected — on-line, on-screen and on stage.
Session 2 (1 Aug): Unlocking the text
Building on the previous session's work, the focus will turn to how to engage with text. Participants will be introduced to techniques for unearthing dramatic possibilities in text, heightening their connection to the word and for allowing the voice to claim its full expressive range. Texts will be provided in advance so that participants can learn their lines before the workshop.
Each session will have dedicated time for participants’ questions, comments and feedback.
