Take Your Space!
Join Cindy Block
and Dawn McCaugherty
in discovering a full body approach to speaking your truth. Embrace your presence potential, move and stand with authority, be seen and be heard. During this workshop we will engage in physical and vocal practices to encourage awareness, play, freedom, expansion and resonance. What do you have to say? From breath to impulse to action be fully present and expressive; allow your words and text to blossom.
Explore with Cindy and Dawn how we might bring into the balance three elements of presence physical, emotional and intellectual – with breath serving as the conduit which connects and unites. Experience proprioceptive and movement forms that will encourage you ‘to move like you’ve never moved before’, to activate sensory awareness and find space in the body for breath and sound, resulting in expanded range and freedom of expression. Finally, experience the resounding presence that results when linking this moving with words/text to share thought/vocal action with listeners.
Please bring with you, memorized well, a ‘Passion Speech’ of 1 – 1 ½ minutes in length. This should be a piece of text with which you resonate and feel a deep personal connection, and that you wish to explore further. It might be a poem or a speech from a play, a passage from a novel or social/political speech, or a selection from a spiritual text, for instance. What do you want to say?
