ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

In this 3-day workshop, participants will investigate and develop greater “Presence” through a technical process of greater self-awareness.

Patsy Rodenburg will reveal the concept of the three circles of energy and how all human energy moves:

  • First Circle – the circle of self and withdrawal.
  • Second Circle – the energy of connecting where your energy is focused and where you react and communicate best.
  • Third Circle – the circle where all your energy is outward, nonspecific and not targeted.


  • Practical exercises that employ the body, breath and voice will show participants how to improve communication and presentation skills as well as understanding how best to engage with others:

  • Body - we will look at how you create a naturally placed and connected body so that your energy moves through you with ease and authenticity.
  • Breathing – correct breathing is crucial to both communication and leadership. Patsy will explore how breathing in a natural way will ensure you are both present and powerful.
  • Voice, clarity and delivery - In this workshop we look at the importance of speaking with a natural voice which is direct, clear, free and connected.

  • Participants discover how to speak from an authentic place and how to tell a story. Individual speech work through classical texts will be explored. The structure and specificity of language is employed through Shakespeare to give participants the opportunity to master and inspire audiences through the spoken word.

    LEVEL III

    For those ready to apply Patsy’s work to a full length play. Level III takes the ensemble aspect of Patsy’s work and culminates in a presentation of Measure for Measure. This four-day intensive focuses on ensemble, heightened text, and character development, and is for actors ready to take their work to the highest level. Completion of Levels I and II required for enrollment.
