Unit description:

Students explore the specific physical and vocal skills required for the demands of text and varying performance contexts. This exploration focuses on the objective of enlarging the realm of possibilities for each student as a communicator of emotion, ideas and meaning. Specifically, students develop an ability to strengthen spinal support; to connect breath and movement and sound; to centre the natural voice; to free the channel of sound; to articulate clearly; to extend the range of the voice; to understand phonetics; and to convey the subtle nuances of thought and feeling present in text. The unit also introduces the Stanislavski conceptions of action, given circumstances, sensory awareness, concentration, emotional memory, imagination and observation.
