OPEN YOUR VOICE
Sunday 14th June 2-6pm
Facilitator: Adrian Brett
Class level: Open (Adults & Teenagers)
Max – 15 People
Everyone does yoga but hardly anyone has a regular voice practice! The physical, emotional and physical benefits that a regular voice practice brings are powerful. For actors and singers a voice practice is essential.
In this workshop you will learn a fundamental voice warm-up, which, if you practice it regularly, will sustain and transform your voice. In the process you will learn about voice/body connection, tension release, breath, resonance, pitch and articulation, whilst having a lot of fun. There will be an emphasis on language and we will explore a couple of poetic and dramatic texts, using choral and individual speaking.
Adrian Brett trains actors at The Actors Workshop and The Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts, in Brisbane. He is passionate about the voice and loves facilitating people in developing an active and joyous connection with their voice and with language.
