Suiting the Action to the Word: a One-Day Workshop in Voice and Practical Aesthetics with Rob Maxwell
June 29th 2019,
10am – 5pm
This dynamic one-day workshop brings two essential components of the actor’s craft together: vocal technique and acting technique. In the first half we will focus on freeing and enriching the voice, through a series of explorations that covers: the action of breath; resonance; tone; and consonant energy & articulation. Participants will then be given the opportunity to find a deeper imaginative and visceral connection to a piece of text of their choosing. In the second half we will explore the technique and philosophy of Practical Aesthetics, giving actors a solid foundation in script analysis, while enhancing their ability to impulsively work from moment-to-moment. We will explore how the illusion of character can be created through action and deep personalization, if we fully commit with bravery, will and common sense. Participants will walk away from the workshop with a simple yet highly effective set of tools that can immediately be applied to their work on stage and screen.
Rob is a Tasmanian actor and educator currently based in Sydney. He holds a Master of Fine Arts in Voice from NIDA, and is a graduate of the Atlantic Acting School in New York City, where he studied the Practical Aesthetics technique for two years. Rob has worked extensively as an actor and teacher both here in Australia and overseas, including residencies at Yale School of Drama, Carnegie Mellon University, and Rose Bruford College. He advocates a training that integrates voice, body, and imagination, to deepen communication, human behavior, and creativity. Rob is currently a voice and acting tutor at NIDA, working across the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Acting), Master of Fine Arts (Voice), and NIDA Open programs.
You can learn a little more about the Practical Aesthetics approach to acting here.
