Advanced Voice and Text
This weekend intensive workshop is designed to further your expressivity, skill, confidence and joy in speaking dramatic text. Exercises will help you strengthen and grow your voice, connecting voice, body, mind and emotional life in a deeply expressive synchrony, released through language. Participants are invited to bring whatever text they are interested in working on at present. You will choose your piece of dramatic text from any genre, any period. Texts might be from a play you are currently rehearsing or performing, a monologue you would like to deepen for auditions or just because you like it, a Shakespeare speech or soliloquy you’ve always wanted to tackle – whatever, truly. The work is designed to allow you to take a deep dive into a single piece of text, deepening your connection to, and broadening your understanding of it. We will begin each day’s session with a full voice warm-up, then move into group and individual work with your chosen text.
Prerequisite: Freeing the Natural Voice Level 1, or instruction in the full progression with a Designated Linklater Teacher.
