Speaking Voice – Studio Practice

Note: Starting Spring 2020, this course will run as Speaking Voice 2 with Ilse Pfeifer

Presented by Ilse Pfeifer

This class builds on the destructuring and restructuring processes of Fitzmaurice Voicework® devised by Catherine Fitzmaurice.

Advanced experimental work in voice, further exploring skills and awareness developed in prior levels, incorporating speech, text, and movement. This class functions as a workout for advanced students, giving you the opportunity to continue building synthesis with the different aspects of your acting work, and also to address specific individual problems and challenges arising from your efforts in performance and rehearsal. You will explore a variety of texts and circumstances with an ever more complex sense of the layering of language, sound, form, and meaning.

Preparation requirements: You are working on a specific play or text and you are aware of aspects of your work that require an integration. This includes body-based needs such as vocal alignment, physical variations to a character’s circumstances, and other needs that can be addressed through voice and movement work.

You are required to bring in all of your actor’s background preparatory work such as: text analysis, objectives, and circumstances of the character and of the play over-all. You are also asked to bring in specific questions and observations, relating to healthy vocal and physical expressivity, that arise as you practice and work.
