Description of module content:

Your classes will continue to consider closely the work of selected, specific theories of voice and movement theorists/ practitioners (which might include, amongst others, Linklater, Berry, Stanislavski, Laban, Michael Chekhov, Suzuki, Rodenburg, Meisner, Alexander, Feldenkrais, or LeCoq techniques). You will explore increasingly more complex ideas and approaches building on your previous knowledge. You will research in depth the work of one of these practitioners whose techniques you find appropriate for your own further enhancement. Leading from this, you will develop and lead a group workshop designed to introduce your peers in a practical way to the work of your chosen theorist. Along with various technique-based and improvised exercises, you will be working with short texts and excerpts. Through a variety of exercises you will develop your emotional, imaginative and intellectual responses. You will work toward acquiring skills in facilitation and leading your peer group.The overall aim in these classes will be to help you further deepen your knowledge of a variety of techniques that can help you build physical and vocal expression and stamina, and to enhance concentration and imagination in a variety of complex contexts.
