Clearly Speaking

Teacher: Susanne Sulby

In these workshops, we will explore the powerful and compelling process of bringing our text from the passionate expression of feeling to the dynamic clarity of articulate speech.

Clear communication balances the desire to speak – and the need to share the feelings behind that desire – with a clear thought process.  Through exercises that open the breath and the body, we will bring to life the sensory connections between the energy centers in our bodies and the articulating muscles and surfaces of our mouths.

In each workshop, we will

  •   Explore the free release of emotions through the vowels
  •   Clarify our specific thoughts through a more tactile connection to consonants
  •   Bring our discoveries on to an exploration of text

These workshops are designed for actors, performers, professionals – anyone with the desire to speak more clearly and with greater freedom.

Each workshop can stand alone – but by signing up for two or three you can build momentum and further your explorations.

Prepare some text that you love – or bring in something from a talk you have to give – and join us in developing your ability to express clear and articulate thought.

All workshop sessions will be held at:
