This voice and text workshop is designed for professional performers, actors, singers, students, voice teachers and anyone interested in the voice and the act and art of speaking in public.

Principles:

  • The aims of the exercises are to free, to develop and to strengthen the voice. The ultimate objective is a voice connected to the emotional impulses, shaped by the intellect but not inhibited by it.
  • The emphasis is on unlocking physical and psychological blockages that stifle the human instrument.
  • There is a progression in the exercises, and this progression is organic.

We start with physical awareness to become aware of the habitual tensions we carry around and the possibility of release.

The awareness of the natural rhythm of breathing follows: we observe without controlling.

The touch of sound: we visualise and feel the sound that has its origin in the body.

The vibrations: we draw the sound from the middle of the body to the lips, feeling the sound naturally amplified by them, amplified in the head and in the whole body.

We discover the obstacles in the channel of the voice (jaw, tongue, soft palate and throat) that prevent the sound from travelling without tension.

We explore some of the resonators starting with the ladder of resonances: from the chest to the mouth to the teeth where we feel the resonances in the bony cavities of the body; they correspond to the different energies of the voice and to different pitches.

Come with comfortable clothes and a text you know by heart; the text can be a monologue or a poem, it needs to be something you have chosen and want to share. Ideally, it should be a first-person text, not a descriptive one.

Voice Tale

The work session focuses on an exploration into our own voices and our voices reflected and fused in the voices of others; on the strength of standing confident with the sound of our own voice, exploring its richness and building the foundation to support it, through breath, physical support, imagination. Discovering its strength when appearing singly, and power when it adds to the richness of a common sound created by other voices
