Workshop on Healthier Vocal Work
Led by: Neco Pacheaco (she/they/Neco)
Duration: 2 hours
Date and Time: Sunday Oct 23rd, 3-5pm
Location: HUGE Theater, 3037 Lyndale Ave S Minneapolis MN 55408
As a performer with several years of training in both improv and scripted acting programs, Neco will take you through vocal exploration exercises that can help you take your performance to the next level.
In this workshop you’ll expand your awareness of how your body and voice are interconnected, and how you can best set yourself up for success to project and explore character vocality. We’ll focus a lot of time on breath work and practicing getting out of the way of our natural ability to make a lot of sound. We’ll then explore the different sounds we can make with our voice and explore best practices for how to sustain various types of pitches, tones, and character voices for long periods of time.
By the end of this workshop, I hope you and I will achieve the following goals:
-Increase your confidence in your ability to project
-Set you up to project healthily and consistently
-Find new sounds you can make and use in your character work
-Provide you with warmups you can use before any performance
