Articulating the Voice
Eugene Lang College Lib Arts: The Arts
This course explores the fundamentals of good voice production based on Kristin Linklater's ""Freeing the Natural Voice"" to further develop good voice and body use through advanced exercises beginning with Sound & Movement. Students will learn elements of good speech, the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), how to prepare various texts from poetic language to political speeches and scene work, and how to develop the ability to speak with clarity, agility, and intellectual and emotional rigor. The focus will be on Neutral American Speech and the ability to speak NAS without regionalisms, not as a prescribed way to speak but as a choice to use in public speaking and professional work. The course will also include a Partner Accent Project with diagnostic tools to learn one another's native speech patterns, sounds, and rhythms. The objective is for students to develop the facility to embody language with a balanced quartet of intellect, emotion, voice, and body. This course fulfills an elective requirement for Theater majors and minors.
