This summer, I'm delighted to be teaching voice in the Larry Singer Studios Summer Conservatory in NYC. It's my first time teaching with Larry, and it's a real joy. The students study voice, physical acting, scene study, and writing for performance. They also attend professional productions and meet with industry professionals in the city. And they receive college credit!
I'm teaching Voice in the Theatermakers training program at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center in Waterford, CT, for the fourth time. Theatermakers is an ensemble that is made up of college-aged actors, directors, and playwrights. It's a 6-week immersive experience in which the students make and perform new work every week, as well as train with and observe professionals. The group is delightful this year, and we get to work here:
My next project opens at the Toronto Fringe Festival next week. White Horse Theater Company will bring the second production of YOU ARE PERFECT by Cyndy A. Marion to Canada July 7-15. This production is directed by Rhys J. McClelland, and I again helped with the accents. Take a journey into the mind and memory of Susan Atkins. Tickets and more info here.
This is a new website for me, and thus begins a new blog.
I had the privilege of teaching two days in Catherine Fitzmaurice's 6-day workshop in NYC over Memorial Day Weekend. On Saturday, I was part of the Restructuring teaching team, exploring and practicing the FV method of breath support for communication. On Monday, I was part of the Speech teaching team, exploring and practicing all possible speech actions and using them for communication. It was a wonderful group of participants and teachers.
