Fundamentals of Voice and Body FPB130

Launceston

Note:

Students must wear non-restrictive clothing and footwear.

Introduction

This unit will introduce students to primary elements of performance practice with a particular focus on voice, body and their relationship with space and imagination. In this unit, students will learn the specific skills of voice production and movement.

The unit will also allow students to develop physical and vocal confidence through trust building exercises and imaginative and improvisational play. Students will have an opportunity to apply this knowledge to creative explorations such as movement pieces, soundscapes, choral work and spoken word.
