Using a variety of vocal techniques, this workshop will help you discover the full power and potential of your voice. Through voice work and posture, we will also focus on improving your vocal work for recorded mediums, and how best to work with the voice while playing online. You will leave this workshop with a variety of exercises to ensure you are using the maximum capacity of your voice, without strain or damage.
Singing technique for improvisers.
Would you like to extend your vocal range, strengthen your voice, and feel more confident with your singing? In this workshop, we will use a variety of vocal techniques and exercises to unlock the full range of your voice, and learn how to use your voice for singing in a healthy way. You will leave this workshop with a range of tools to strengthen and enrich your voice, and an understanding of how best to work with your voice on stage. For this workshop, I recommend participants are somewhere where they are able to stand, and (if you can get them) a straw and a wine bottle cork will be useful for some exercises.
Intimacy on Zoom.
“Making real connections on zoom is impossible!”. Or is it? In this workshop, we will use a variety of techniques to help you create intimacy and share a strong connection with your scene partner. Together, we will explore a more grounded, affectionate, and tender way of playing whilst in the online space, with a focus on consent and trust.
Hot Under the Collar
With a focus on consent, confidence building, and fun, this class will teach you a variety of techniques to discover your hot and sexy self. Learn how to flirt, create intimate scenes, and find your own brand of hotness.
How to be Sexy - co-taught with Stephen Davidson (Also available as a 4-week course).
An improv class that focuses on being sexy. Learn how to flirt, stage intimate moments, and own your own unique brand of hotness. Sexiness in improv needs confidence, safety, encouragement, and space. Rhiannon and Stephen are both experts in sexiness and holding space, and will help everyone in the room find their own way to be their hot and sexy self with confidence and pride.
Acting for Improvisers - Emotional Recall.
Do you wish you had more "acting chops" when improvising? In this workshop, we will explore sense memory and emotional recall as a way to fully immerse yourself in scenes. Using techniques developed by practitioners such as Stanislavsky, we will draw from your own memories to discover your acting potential.
Acting for Improvisers - GOTE.
This is an experimental workshop, taking exercises usually used in scripted work, and applying them to improv. We will explore Robert Cohen's "Goals, Obstacles, Tactics, and Expectations", to see how this practice can be used in non-scripted theatre.
Acting through song.
Do you find yourself at a loss for words when improvising songs? Are your improvised songs coming from your head and not your heart? In this workshop, we will explore exercises and techniques traditionally used in scripted Musical Theatre to help you bring dynamic and truthful acting into your improvised singing. We will work on truth, vulnerability, and emotional clarity to bring out the heightened emotions needed for truly engaging musical improv.
Let's get Physical.
Do you often find yourself in "talking heads" scenes? In this workshop, we will break out of that mould, and really tap into all the fun things our bodies can do.
In this workshop we will focus on putting all your attention on your scene partner, and taking in everything they're giving you. Become everyone's favourite improviser to play with!
Who are you? Bringing yourself to the Stage.
In this workshop we will use a variety of exercises and techniques to encourage you to be more vulnerable, more truthful, and more yourself on stage. All this will help you be better able to connect with your scene partner, and more comfortable on stage.
In this intro to improv we will explore "yes, and", and help you find your spontaneity, confidence, and creativity. No acting or performance experience is required; just a desire to have fun!
