Event Description


A ONE-DAY MASTER CLASS with Award-Winning Storyteller and Theatre Artist DIANE EDGECOMB

Whenever we communicate a story, an idea or an image we rely on our voices to create a living world for our listeners. To do this we need a voice that is both expressive and authentic. Diane’s unique vocal and physical exercises help strengthen and explore the connection between imagination and voice. Concentration, sourcing inner images, vocal impulses and being porous to what we imagine help bring about more expressive storytelling and communication skills for each participant. Special emphasis is placed on going beyond habitual usages and restrictions to find your natural and true voice, increasing its range and resonance. Wear comfortable clothing and come prepared to speak, sing and Sound Out!

This workshop is for storytellers, theatre artists, public speakers, clergy, teachers, interpreters and all those who rely on good voice production and expressive vocal abilities in their work. Open to all levels of experience.

From a Previous Imaginative Voice Workshop:

 “Lots of great activities, sense of play, building on previous activities, feedback – thanks so much for sharing these techniques.”

“All of this was new to me. It will definitely bring strength and meaning to my storytelling."

Tickets are $100, $75 if purchased by July 25th.
