Event Description



You will be introduced to several techniques for increasing vocal range and power and then begin an exploration of sound as a physical force and articulation for clarity and impact on your audience.

Exploration of the acting technique “imaging the text” will enrich your storytelling with vivid detail by bringing the story to life in your mind. You will finish with the art of rhetoric and how to apply it to your storytelling.

You are requested to bring hard copies of two stories you would like to work with (it will be beneficial if one of the two is new to you).
