The Body Speaks – An Introduction to Speaking for Performance

January 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm GMT

This exciting workshop is for anyone who wants to explore the art of speaking aloud.

About this event


We will provide a 2 hour workshop that will explore:

Body preparation exercises (based on the Alexander Technique)

Voice exercises (based on the work of leading voice and speech coach Patsy Rodenburg)

Participants will practice exercises and routines that will:

  • return your body and mind to a state of alert readiness (including breathing exercises)
  • warm your body and speech muscles
  • move your body while warming the voice
  • explore your own natural vocal range and vocal registers
  • help you to work with text

Whether you are a seasoned speaker or you are new to speaking out loud you will benefit from this workshop. You will find that by being properly prepared to speak out loud your performance will be more confident, more meaningful to your audience and more easily heard and understood.

The workshop will be led by Deni Jones and Mike Jenkins.

Deni is an Actor, Director, Teacher of The Alexander Technique and Yoga and a Performing Arts teacher.

Mike is an Actor, Writer and Teacher (trained by Patsy Rodenburg in Voice and Speech at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama).
