WORKSHOPS SINGAPORE 2015

Building a Radiant Presence


What have theatre, Buddhism and human psychology got in common? They all promote presence as the key to a more fulfilling existence.

Presence is the ability to be sensory alive in the moment, to have all your senses alert and ready: hearing, sight, taste, smell, touch and intuition. Presence is not so much a state of being that can be switched on or off – rather, it is a quality of being that manifests itself by degrees, much like fitness and health. And, like fitness and health, it can be improved.


By drawing from his theatre, psychology and Buddhist practice, Bert van Dijk has developed an exciting range of practical, stimulating, and innovative strategies to enhance the quality of our presence. Some focus on re-awakening the more dormant senses of touch, smell, taste and intuition, while others help us to let go of our attachments to the past, or our pre-occupations (or worries) relating to the future.


Most people experience being in the moment as a feeling of supreme well-being. Bliss you could say.

Presence is a critical factor in the effectiveness of all education, performance, leadership and communication.

The Presence Training at HCAC will be offered at two levels: Introductory and Advanced.


Participation in the advanced presence training is conditional on having completed the introduction training:

Michael Chekhov & the Extended Voice (Introduction)

Scope

This innovative VOICE Course, designed for performers, directors, acting, drama, voice and speech teachers and presenters, offers an approach to vocal training that combines the revolutionary Roy Hart approach to the Extended Voice with a range of techniques that help invest vocal expressions with intention, feeling and imagery drawn from the Michael Chekhov Acting method. During the course participants will receive ample opportunities to explore and develop an extended range of vocal sounds – from the most delicate sigh to the wildest roar. Participants will be introduced to 1) the latest approaches to achieve economy of breath (Passive Breathing), 2) practical strategies to shape vowels and consonants with clarity and precision, and 3) techniques to enhance the quality of vocal expression in text and sound. To facilitate the application and integration of presented techniques participants will be explore a range of poetic and narrative-based texts and take part in a variety of games and vocal improvisation.
