VOICE DIALOGUE ACTING IN ENGLISH

Voice Dialogue Acting is holistic

 

Holistic Acting incorporates a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual approach and the training integrates mind, body, and spirit.

The basic concept of this work is to consider and train the actor holistically. The term "holistic" is derived from the Greek root, holos, meaning complete, or whole. A holistic approach to acting views the actor's instrument as not only comprised of the body (which engenders posture, gestures, movement, and voice), and the mind (which addresses the objectives, intentions, feelings and sensations), but also of the invisible energetic life force of the person, called prana by the Hindus, qi or chi by the Chinese, and referred to as spirit by the Occidentals.

 

 

Voice Dialogue is an approach that was introduced to me by late Mala Powers during the Michael Chekhov Institute at the University of Southern Maine in 1999.

 

Voice Dialogue, was initially developed in 1972, by Hal Stone, Ph.D. and Sidra Stone, Ph.D. as an exploration of relationships and the Psychology of Selves (also known as the Psychology of the Aware Ego). This technique is a tool to explore the multitude of inner characters in our consciousness, giving them a voice, and letting them speak in a facilitated and structured setting.

 

It has been successfully used by professionals in the fields of psychotherapy, counseling, personal coaching, business or organizational consulting and creative coaching.  I have found it to be an extraordinary tool for actors and performers as it enables them to tap into a specific Self –or Sub-Personality– for the development of a character. And it is so theatrical!

 

Join a group of professional actors who are motivated and serious about honoring their instrument, while diving into characters with organic truth.
