Develop your vocal and performance techniques to really bring your poems off the page at live events.
In this introductory workshop, we will explore alignment and physical release, bringing awareness to how we breathe and how voiced sound is created. We will be doing exercises to free the voice and develop its range and resonance. How can voice work lift images off the page? How can we communicate effectively and clearly when reading poetry to a live audience? Please wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring a poem that you are happy to share with the group. The workshop will be practical,informative and fun!
One-day workshop from 10:30am to 4:30pm on Saturday 21st October.
More information about how all our face-to-face courses work can be found on the Face-to-Face courses page.
