Event description
A one-day, six-hour-long event that will start with a Vocal Warm Up and lead into Vocal Exercises on a selection of Shakespearean texts

About this event

Voice coach Matthew Collins works with a wide range of clients – from actors and business people to prisoners and members of the Women’s Institute. He loves helping people explore their voices. But he has a passion for helping them explore their voices with a little help from Shakespeare.

Now, he is offering a one-day, in-person Speaking Shakespeare workshop at Bell House.

During the workshop Matthew will introduce participants to the principles of voice work, use vocal exercises to explore participants’ voices, and encourage them to explore texts reflecting different aspects of Shakespearean language.

Shakespeare wrote his texts to be spoken. So, whether you’re an actor or someone who has never set foot on a stage, come and speak Shakespeare with Matthew Collins. And feel the effect that some of the most powerful words ever written can have on the body, mind and even the soul. Learn about Shakespeare, learn about your voice and explore new vocal possibilities.

About the session:

The session will take place from 10am to 4pm with a one-hour lunch break in the middle. Please note that lunch will not be provided.

The workshop is open to all, whether you are already familiar with Shakespeare or not!

'Active Shakespeare was much more fun than academic study and activities which required students to respond physically to the language are clearly a winner' - Teacher at The London Oratory School

'Really took me out of myself. Cheers guv' - prisoner at HMP Wormwood Scrubs
