Service Description

'This class with Fabio has been profound and transformative for my acting, as well as everyday life. I love this practice!' -Verity Wood (actor and Workshop Participant). Want to find a deeper, personal and more authentic connection to your body, breath and sound? Want to discover how to access greater presence in your acting or everyday life? Want to find deeper synchronicity between your body and your voice? Then this is the workshop for you! This class offers an introduction to the destructuring and restructuring processes of Fitzmaurice Voicework®. The work provides a holistic practice to voice work, allowing for great vocal expression and freedom from physical tension. It also looks at having a more expressive body to be able to connect to impulses and play. We begin with the cultivation of deep physical awareness. Specific attention will be given to how the body—bones, muscles, breath, and nervous system – relates to healthy vocal production and vocal freedom. The practice will focus on developing spontaneity, learning what it feels like to give in to a physical experience and connecting to sound. You will also learn the basic anatomy that supports breathing, sound-making, and articulation in speech. Throughout this course you are asked to discover your own process and be with others in theirs, so together the group develops a sense of what it means to be heard, seen and felt. Over 6 weeks the class aims to give you a technique and practice to find a deeper embodied connection to your text, speech or song. Be advised that this Level requires time to master, and most actors will need a two- or three-term investment at Level 1 to develop awareness and become confident in these practices. After one term, you will still gain an understanding as well as an embodied experience of how this work can have a transformative impact on your speaking and singing voice. Actors are asked to bring a piece of text that wish to explore throughout the workshop. This can be a poem, song or a contemporary/classical monologue.
