The Living Word

The Living Word – an introduction to enlivening our speech, gesture and presence through poetry, story, and improvisation.

In these workshops Duncan aims to enliven participants relationship to the English language through  exploring breath, speech, language, the power of  consonants and vowels, rhythm, word gesture, using speech exercises, poetic and dramatic texts, and story, while also encouraging a deepening of our contact with our embodied presence relation to the space around us

I draw from my experience as an actor, poetry speaker, storyteller, teacher, and director and from working and teaching with various methods and no methods, including those of Rudolf Steiner, Michael Chekov. 

Workshops and individual tutoring in:

Creative Speech (and ‘speech formation’), Storytelling ,  Poetry speaking,  Dramatic speech and acting
