The Transferable Skills of An Actor (2)
Course details from the web:
Date: Monday 30th April
Time: 10.00am – 1.00pm
Venue: The CAPITAL Centre, Millburn House
Course organisers: The CAPITAL Centre, English and Comparative Literary studies
Organised by the CAPITAL (Creativity in Teaching and Learning) Centre, a collaboration between the University of Warwick and the Royal Shakespeare Company, Lyn Darnley and Alison Bomber of the RSC’s Voice Department will lead two workshops exploring the skills of the actor in presenting ideas. These workshops address the central objective of CAPITAL: to apply the nature and practice of performance to teaching and learning throughout the University.
Numbers for each workshop are limited to ten and each consists of two separate sessions. The first will consider using vocal energy posture and body language to achieve the desired impact. The second session challenges assumptions as listeners and speakers and investigates holding the space, status and how we convey it, and keeping ideas fresh, in order to maximise audience response.
These are not merely presentations skills workshops but highly interactive sessions aimed at anyone interested in discovering how to select from a range of voice and performance techniques to achieve a greater impact on others.
