Get Moving

We’ve been experimenting with gestures in our voice work, working our speeches with the Laban Effort/Shapes of push, punch, wring, slash, float, dab, flick.  As we apply each one, we discover how they affect our thought and therefore voice and emotion.  It’s amazing how the same words said while making a slashing motion, come out entirely differently when said while flicking your hand.  This “body language” has become an important way for us to explore the many possible meanings in our text – and a great way to enter the text physically and get our head out of the way.
