This intensive workshop will help you find greater vocal freedom, connection, and presence in your work.
We'll start with exercises to free the breathing and voice as we explore a sense of being vibrantly relaxed. In this part of the work, called Destructuring, we'll give special attention to freeing muscles related to breathing through bodywork and mindfulness practices adapted for that purpose. This primarily internal attention will then be gradually shifted to bring you into an increasingly open relationship with others and the space. We'll then explore how this felt experience of openness can serve your voice and text work in surprisingly helpful ways.
We'll also briefly cover the second part of Fitzmaurice Voicework, Structuring, to help you communicate with greater vocal flexibility, depth, and power.
This intensive has three goals:
• to help you learn a highly effective full-body vocal warm-up that can become a part of any regular warm-up routine you use.
• to offer a deep experience of the role of breathing in developing greater presence and meaningful connection and spontaneity in your work.
• to address your specific needs.
