Course Description

This twelve steps workshop will address the problematics of image of oneself and the other. And how to establish a powerful and authentic relationship with an audience or on a one to one basis. We will gradually deepen our understanding of the stakes and means of establishing relationships in a professional and other social settings. Through an introduction to various communication tools, improvisation games and the exploration of these themes in situ we will also learn more about ourselves in a fun and safe environment. Each class will have two tempos : the first hour will mostly be dedicated to warm ups, vocal and physical techniques and the explorations of these tools. We will improve our body language and stretch our vocal capacities. During the second hour we will focus on improvisations, practical exercises and text work. The semester will be finalised by a public debate. At the end of the course, the student is expected to : 1°) Have gained confidence and ease in public speaking ; 2°) Have a good self awareness on stage ; 3°) Understand how to lead a conversation and a debate.
