As performers, we seek to free the fullest potential of the body as an instrument. With voice work, the actor becomes aware of the body, frees the breath, and allows expression to become sound. In order to be available to spontaneous impulses, the voice work delves into the emotional relationship between the voice and the body. This eight week course will move through the first half of the Linklater Progression to unlock each actor’s wide and colorful range of vocal qualities and resonances. Actors will have the chance to apply their voice work to texts throughout the process. Our aim will be to speak freely and freely speak. Students will receive individual coaching and hands-on adjustments.
Thursdays (2/9 – 3/30), 7pm-9pm (Instructor: Aram Monisoff)
