THE THOUGHT CREATES THE SOUND: A VOICE WORKSHOP FOR STORYTELLERS

Conducted by Julie Wee

 

Voice is not just about the sounds you make. The process starts long before you open your mouth. Your voice is your thought, the meaning you’re trying to get across. This workshop won’t focus just on producing the sound with ease, but on the reason you make the sound.

You will learn a structured voice warm up that you can do at home, as well as just before you step up to tell your story. We will also touch on how you can rehearse your story once you know the content, how you can try different things, not re-creating what worked before but telling the story in the moment and to surprise yourself.

StoryLab Presents Stories of Transformation

In conjunction with World Storytelling Day

We may not have the power to turn all frogs into princes (or princesses!), but the choices we make in life have the power to transform and define who we are. When it happens, will we like what we become? Will our personal transformations change our lives and our world for better, or for worse?
