The schedule is as follows:
INTRODUCTION - FREEING THE NATURAL VOICE, THE LINKLATER PROGRESSON
A practical and sensory exploration of the Linklater voice work. The overall function of the work is to remove the physical and psychological blocks that inhibit the human vocal instrument. The objective of the work is a voice in direct contact with emotional impulse, shaped by the intellect but not restricted by it. As we work with releasing the voice from the body, we will work viscerally with language and text transforming communication and interpretive skills.
ADVANCED VOICE WORK AND TEXTWORK
Study of dramatic texts and texts from literature open the opportunity ti explore expressiveness of language through an experience of the words in the body and of vocal freedom. Exercises are meant to develop active listening, spontaneity and connection to find creative inspiration in the present moment. The aim is to embody words from the text developing a synthetic understanding of sounds, images, feelings, ideas and mnemonic and emotional stimuli connected to its exploration. Stimuli bear influence on breathing and breathing influences the body; sound is explored both as an expressive and evocative content of text.
On the last day of the workshop an open class will offer the opportunity to share materials developed in the workshop in a performance hosted by the Eco Logical Theatre Fest.
Workshop is held under the auspices of the Italian Accademia Nazionale d’Arte Drammatica “Silvio d’Amico”.
