The Actors Centre

Voice and Speech for Theatre Performance

WHAT IS IT? This workshop is for actors who are interested in exploring the potential of their vocal instrument, especially those whose careers have focussed on TV, film and radio who are now working on stage and in large venues. HOW WILL IT WORK? Jacquie will introduce techniques to ensure accurate, safe projection while maintaining a truthful performance. You will discover how to be audible and clear without straining your voice. Texts will be provided but do bring any speeches you would like to work on. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing for movement. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? The workshop aims to banish the often held fear of giving an ‘over the top’, superficial performance when increasing physical and vocal size. You will also experience ways of sharing all the truth of an intimate sensitive text with a large, live audience. Price: £30.
