This workshop will be led in Japanese only, no English translation



The workshop begins with exercises designed to awaken a sensory and imagistic relationship with voice. The progression of exercises leads from physical awareness (locating tension and releasing it) to awareness of natural breathing, the experience of sound in the body, the release of tension in the throat, jaw, tongue and soft palate, the development of resonating power in the chest, the mouth and the face, the accompanying development of breathing power, the exploration of range throughout two to three octaves of speaking notes and, finally, to articulation.

The workshop gives a practical, experiential overview of the voice work for actors known as Freeing the Natural Voice. This work is extensively laid out and explained in the 2006 edition of Kristin Linklater’s book Freeing the Natural Voice: Imagery and Art in the Practice of Voice and Language. The overall function of the work is to remove the physical and psychological blocks that inhibit the human vocal instrument. The objective of the work is a voice in direct contact with emotional impulse, shaped by the intellect but not restricted by it. Once the voice is free it can connect viscerally with language, transforming communication and interpretative skills.

Be aware that exercises include adapted yoga position, floor relaxation, arm swings and other physical activities. All these can be adjusted to individual physical needs.
