"Following on from the widely acclaimed The Actor and the Text, Cicely Berry draws on her group work to emphasise how actors and directors can use the rehearsal process to heighten their collective awareness of language." "Our first acquaintance with a play is from reading it, either alone or as part of a group. During this process we concentrate on making sense of it, which can prevent us from listening to what the sound and texture of the language are telling us. The world of a play is created by its language; the imagery, rhythm and speech structures all contribute to its representation of reality." "Focusing primarily on Shakespeare, but with techniques that can be applied to modern texts too, Text in Action sets out language work that can be done by the whole group to uncover different layers of meaning within the text. It opens up new interpretations and possible reactions."--Jacket

"The Voice Preparation Workshop offers direct, experienced, and artistically stimulating guidance for students of all ages who wish to explore their vocal potential through the principles articulated in the Working Shakespeare series. In the first part of Andrew Wade's workshop, students are gently eased into the thinking behind each step of what will later form their own routine of exercises. We are taken through a personal journey of discovery through practical observation of the group's progress and thinking. Exercises address: Relaxation; Resonance; Muscularity; Breathing. Students learn how: To realize the vocal demands of a specific text; To explore their verbal potential; To develop musculature that enhances vocal range and depth. While Part One stimulates our curiosity and expands our understanding through the concrete help of close-up shots, screen inserts and computer graphics, Part Two is an invitation to join in, experiment with the work and even practice on a piece of text of our own choosing. Andrew Wade accompanies the Workshop with his own booklet, offering sympathetic practical advice on how to continue preparation on one's own." --WAL
