This course will explore the anatomy, physiology, and physicality of the human voice and body. The approach will be holistic mind, body, and vocal practice. Techniques learned and practiced will be applied directly to specific performance assignments throughout the semester. Students will begin by examining and identifying healthy, effective, and expressive voice and body use. Students will receive an introduction to the practices of Patsy Rodenburg, Edith Skinner, the Viewpoints, Rudolf Laban, yoga, among others. The work will focus on voice and bodywork as they relate to acting and to any area of life requiring effective communication. Emphasis in text work will be on clarity of thought, physical connection, emotional availability, and clear communication.
