Wednesday 25th April 2018 – Voice Masterclass
with Zoe Katsilerou
In this 2 hour workshop, Zoe will lead us through exploring the possibilities of our voices. Through playful exercises, improvisations and games, we will get to know our voices a little better, understand them and choose the ways we want to use them.
We will explore range, richness, agility and creativity whilst learning how to take care of this invaluable tool of expression. We will also touch upon breathing, working with text and projecting the voice with confidence; be that on stage, in the office or just on a loud night out!
All abilities are welcome but no experience is required to attend this workshop as Zoe will guide you through the work and provide the opportunity for you to work with your own terms.
