Acting & Voice Workshop
"The Art of Listening"
“As artists, our palate is our humanity and our ability to listen to others; our inspiration from which we create.”

Dates : 26th to 30th of June, 2017
Time : 10 to 5
Fee : €375.87

Workshop Content (Awareness, Listening & Presence skills for the actor/ artist)

We will explore in depth what it means to enrich our listening as artists/ actors and how this can inspire and nourish our creative impulses in life and in our art. We will work with awareness, listening and presence exercises to deepen our connection to ourselves, our characters, our scene partners. We will explore how to trust the unconscious creative impulses that emerge from within to bring us to an unknown and new place in our creative expression. If you need a space to re inspire yourself creatively then this is what we offer. You will learn practical tools in relation to developing your character.
The first part of the morning will be spent connecting to your voice and body so you can develop a warmup that suits you depending on the day. This will be done through Qigong and Fitzmaurice Voicework Exercises. Later in the morning and afternoon we will explore developing skills in relation to your acting through awareness, presence and listening.

Bring two contrasting pieces learned off .
