Industry Listing, Workshop / Classes.

Free your voice. Reconnect with your passion for performing. Minimum effort, maximum effect.

Actor and Designated Linklater Voice Teacher Sarah Weatherwax offers a six week Voice & Text class.

VOICE & BODY The primary focus.
Learn body/voice exercises designed to relax your inner musculature for free expression and energize your outer musculature for characterization. Learn quick ways to prepare for auditions and performances. Exercises taught will address spinal awareness and breath awareness all the way through to range and articulation with everything in between: jaw, tongue, soft palate exercises, breathing power and specific warm-ups for chest, mouth, teeth, sinus, nasal and skull resonance. Students will be asked to do some homework between classes to deepen their experience. Homework assigned will be based on in-class discovery of which exercises most effectively release each student's particular blocks.

VOICE & TEXT The easily accessible.
Time will be allotted for each student to work on an audition piece of their choosing as well as for group text exercises. All coachings come from a voice/body point of view. The final class will include a small, casual invited audience. In this way, students can experience the direct application of Linklater Voice work to acting and utilize the tools learned in a relaxed, replicated performance environment.

With a free voice and a relaxed body it is easier for the actor to listen more clearly and fully and to be more effected by circumstances, character and text. Instinct, emotion and creativity are all more easily accessible. Intended for career performers and career-minded actors in training, but no previous experience with this method is required.
