This subject introduces students to the interdependence of voice and body. The unit addresses idiosyncratic habits, which may inhibit the moving and speaking performer in order to develop a functional, efficient and flexible body and voice. This subject will include a selection from the following: physical awareness of breath in the body; muscularity; resonance; active listening and kinaesthetic awareness; and fundamental patterns of physical organization. To enable this introduction students will undertake physical improvisation, dynamic imagery and rhythmical play to activate sensory perception. This unit is co-delivered to BFA Acting and BFA Theatre students.
Intended learning outcomes
- Recognise the relationship of breath, body, voice, mind and physical presence
