Voice and Oral Expression

Spoken voice 1

From October 5 to June 20, 2024

Thursday 9am – 11am with Mariona Esplugues
Thursday 11am – 13pm with Oriol Guinart

In the first semester of the course, we will work on awareness of the body and breathing to identify the blockages that prevent the voice channel from being open and free. We will begin to identify tools to project the voice and apply it to improvisational texts and exercises.

In the second semester, we will focus on the projection of the voice when interpreting theatrical texts, and we will place special emphasis on articulation and vocalization. We will work with both contemporary and classic texts.

Spoken voice 2 – Dramatized reading

From September 21 to June 20, 2024

Thursday 11pm – 13pm with Miriam Marcet

The aim of this course is, fundamentally, to provide a comprehensive training of the spoken voice focused on theatrical texts. The practical application of the technique will focus on the genre of dramatized reading. We will give the necessary tools to face a theatrical text: structural and content understanding work, emotional connection and communication of the same text; and on the other hand, we will understand and learn to develop in the specific elements of the dramatized reading as a concrete tool for the performer: learning to give life to the characters from the role and at the same time, to make the role disappear in the eyes of the public by using the images and emotions of the theatrical text.
