BOB HOPE THEATRE ACTORS' COMPANY - Voice Workshops for vocal characterisation and accents
I designed and delivered a 3 hour workshop to develop vocal understanding about how one's physical, mental and emotional state, environment and personal experience can shape the way the voice sounds. Thus giving a basis for developing character voices and different sounds through exercises and games. The workshop also included playing with how to create the basic sounds for different accents - specifically Lancashire based vowel sounds - by playing with placement of sound within the mouth, use of teeth, tongue, lips and visualisation with lots of game-playing and exercises to practice placement.
BROMLEY PLAYERS - dedicated 1-2-1 accent workshop
Working one to one to help an actor with no real experience of doing American accents discover her New York accent. We worked on specifics for particular areas of New York, mouth shape, vocal modulation, dynamism, phrasing and creation of specific sounds.
GOEFFREY WHITWORTH THEATRE - Voice Workshop for Geordie accent
Creation of a tailored voice workshop to help the actors develop their Geordie accents; focussing on placement and mouth shape, along with musical cadence and led by the text for THE PITMAN PAINTERS. This was a deliberately collaborative session aimed at starting the vocal journey to a strong Geordie accent with exercises, diction games and learning how one's own mouth shapes words naturally. Can't wait to see this show at the Geoffrey Whitworth Theatre in Crayford in November 2017
SARAH HOWARD/LAURA ELISABETH ASHENDEN - Voice coaching for New York and Australian (Sydney)
Working with Laura to develop strong character accents for the brilliant one-woman show, BOMBSHELLS, at the BHT in May.
Everyone has a voice, but not everyone uses it as well as they would like.
