Through the work in Voice & Speech I actors are guided to experience their voices as thought/feeling impulses, infused with breath and vibration, and freed out through open channels and amplified off of the bodies resonators.
Voice & Speech I 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. With muscles released and the breath relaxed, their vibrations primed for free expression through an open pathway, students increase their vibrations by playing them off of the boney surfaces and resonating cavities of their chest, mouth, and teeth.
