Drama: Language Fundamentals

Project Description

Language, to the actor, is a physical pursuit - not just letters on a page.  Words and language are primary tools with which the actor does their job.  In the same way that the body must be prepared for acting work, so must the vocal instrument be prepared and honed for effective use on the stage.  This workshop introduces vital aural and physical language practice and warmup techniques for the developing acting student.
