Discovering Presence and Voice

Being Present is a state of embodiment that involves the body, breath, voice and storytelling. Over three days Patsy will work on your natural voice and presence and the ability to tell a story. The Natural Voice has been covered by physical habits which not only impede your ability to communicate but signal a lack of authenticity, and therefore authority. You will explore body, breath and voice, and how extensive our voices are, and you will be introduced to Patsy’s Three Circles of EnergyTM. Patsy will diagnose each of you individually and introduce you to a vocal preparation that will prepare you for important communication. We will do (spoken) chorus work and tell stories, and you will be given a selection of Shakespeare’s Sonnets to work on.

The work in Discovering Presence and Voice moves into Delivering Shakespeare. This workshop is critical for any actor who wants to do Shakespeare but is equally critical for anyone who wants to extend their Presence and voice, to work at telling important stories and to deliver formal presentations. All these activities require deep knowledge of structure, form, language and image.
