This workshop provides an exciting way to expand vocal colour, range and expressivity. It will be of special interest to singers, actors, storytellers, drama therapists, and those involved in creative performance.
The workshop will start with general preparation for body, breath and voice, leading into preparation for the particular Archetype/s to be explored. This involves movement, visualisation, imagination and vocal exploration. You will then be guided through a story (the journey) which gives you the opportunity to inhabit the larger-than-life world of the timeless figures of mythology and legend and to discover the vocal qualities that they evoke.
This self-contained session is an introduction to a series of workshops to be offered in 2021. Frankie devised and developed these vocal explorations over decades here in the UK, in Australia and in the US. Author of several books on the voice, she co-authored Acting and Singing with Archetypes (Limelight Publications, 2010). To find out more about Frankie’s work, please visit www.frankiearmstrong.com
Maximum of 11 participants. £15 (cost is open to negotiation if you’re experiencing financial difficulties).
