Nadine George Voice Work

Workshop Leader/Facilitator:

Professor Ros Steen

Category:

Vocal Production

Dates & Times:

23rd - 27th March 2020 from 10.30am-5.30pm daily

Physical Address:

Central London Studio, London UK

Description:

This 5-day workshop provides an opportunity for participants to research and develop their voice through experiencing Nadine George Voice Work’s ability to empower and inspire you. Using George’s highly practical technique the individual is supported to release their authentic, expressive human voice by means of a physical and vocal exploration of the voice linked directly to speaking contemporary text.
Each voice is unique to that individual and no two voices are the same. The workshop deliberately limits the number of participants to allow for the separate development of each person’s voice within a supportive group structure. We believe there is no one pathway to suit all sizes.

Cost: £ 500

Experiencing Speech #25.5

Workshop Leader/Facilitator:

Andrea Caban & Julie Foh

Category:

Speech

Dates & Times:

March 30th-April 5th, 2020; 10am-6pm

Physical Address:

London, England

Description:

Experiencing Speech is the introductory Knight-Thompson Speechwork workshop and is designed for actors, voice/speech teachers, clinicians, and coaches. A six-day intensive, Experiencing Speech delves deeply into the work laid out in Dudley Knight’s Speaking with Skill. The workshop is structured in two parts. The first three days focus on the physical actions that produce all the sounds of the world’s languages. (This section contains no phonetic transcription.) The second three days continue the exploration into even greater specificity through the use of narrow phonetic transcription. Participants then use these skills to explore formal and informal speech actions while maintaining intelligibility. These skills prepare the actor to move easily into any accent or vocal characterization that might be required onstage or in film, television, or new media.

PART ONE     [Three days]
~Awareness and practice of precise articulation action
~Producing all the sounds in language - "Omnish"
~Vocal Tract Posture - the articulatory basis for the sounds in accents and languages
No phonetic transcription will be used in this session of the workshop.

BREAK
We take a day off between the first and second parts. This is a chance to rest and process information, or to enjoy the pleasures of our host city.

PART TWO    [Three days]
~The application of detailed phonetic transcription to the process of speech and accent work
~Using the entire IPA to research and teach speech
~The skills of formal and informal speech

Each day begins with a vocal warm-up based in Fitzmaurice Voicework.

Cost: $800-$900 USD
