Gesture into Speech Workshop - Breathe new life into a monologue

Saturday 29 October 7pm - 7.30pm

with Penelope Wildgoose

This is a practical day to explore ways to integrate intention,physical gesture and vocal quality when working with text. Starting from vocal release, breath, sound work and imagination, we will explore seven radically contrasting ways to approach a monologue, giving you clear creative choices and a greater freedom in your preparation for performance.

*Please bring a favourite monologue, preferably learnt by heart.

Penelope trained at Dartington College of Arts, The London School of Speech and Drama and the Bristol Old Vic’ Theatre School. She has worked on many productions, both for stage and screen, as actress and facilitator. Inspired by Steiner’s work on speech and drama, she combines a love of speech and a passion for dramatic imagination and performance in whatever context she is working. She loves to engage others in the dramatic process and to facilitate empowerment and creativity through voicework and text.
