|Subject Overview:|| |
Voice is a physical activity, and as such, initial work is organised around a foundation of work that allows the individual to discover interdependence of voice and body. The focus of the work lies in addressing idiosyncratic habits which may inhibit the speaking actor. The subject will include a selection from the following: physical awareness of breath in the body, muscularity, resonance, active listening, sight-reading, basic speech structures, kinaesthetic awareness of voice and language and meaning in the moment of speaking through storytelling and, approach to phonetics. Students will be expected to draw upon their experiences of awareness through movement activities such as Feldenkrais, and Alexander Technique in order to facilitate the interdependence of voice and body. There will also be some combined voice/movement classes to enhance this process.
|Assessment:||Assessment is based upon class participation, level of preparation, and the degree to which the stated outcomes have been achieved. Progressive class assessment (70%); class assignments (20%); application of class work to rehearsal and performance (10%)|
