The Voice & Speech Intensive develops the actor’s self-awareness and understanding of relaxation and openness. Students begin to visualize and cultivate new images of the inner workings of their body and their breath and experience how release and relaxation lead to the multiplying and strengthening of vibration.
As the actor’s voice develops, the focus deepens toward the release of habits causing tension in the jaw, tongue, soft palate and throat. This work encourages a wide open physical channel, clearing the way to a fuller, more direct expression of thought/feeling impulses. This work only enhances and deepens the work being explored in the Meisner Acting Intensive.
