Aimed at releasing self-consciousness and intellectual control, Kate’s voice classes integrate the mind, body, and voice. Using exercises that enhance vocal presence through intuitive connections and pre-verbal communication, the actor is able to serve as a vessel for the playwright’s words. Inspired by the work of Barba, Brook, Suzuki, Oida, Hart, Chaikin, and others.
Like a music theory course for Shakespeare, this preparatory class unearths all the information on the page and shows you how to apply it: verse/prose structure; complexities of scansion; rhythm and its uses; theories of punctuation; poetic terminology; rhetoric as both structure and action. Working with scenes and soliloquys, around the table and on your feet.
