  • Experiment with vocal and body energies to tap deeper into the soul of a character

About this course:

This holistic approach to movement, voice, and speech aims at liberating and enhancing the performer's natural capacity for moving, sounding, and speaking as applied to performance on camera. Using techniques developed by Alexander, Spolin, and Sills, learn to feel the way the human body naturally functions when it is free of adverse conditioning. Exercises in posture and breathing, tonal quality, pitch range, projection, and body characterization lead to enhanced character portrayal, emotional truth, and increased energy and mental alertness. You experiment with vocal and body energies, discover numerous choices in communicating text, and find new ways of tapping into the imagination and soul of a character.
