This intensive three-day workshop for actors, voice/speech teachers, clinicians, and coaches will offer focused instruction on narrow phonetic transcription, consistent with the approach laid out in Dudley Knight’s Speaking with Skill and the six-day Experiencing Speech workshops.

~Producing and recognizing all the sounds in language.
~Practice with detailed (narrow) IPA phonetic transcription.
~Practice reading phonetic transcription

Experiencing Speech #26

Workshop Leader/Facilitator:

Andrea Caban & Tyler Seiple

Category:

Speech

Dates & Times:

May 26-June 1, 2020; 10am-6pm PDT

Physical Address:

Long Beach, CA

Description:

Experiencing Speech is the introductory Knight-Thompson 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 complete 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
