exploring your approach to performance
with aisling morgan
friday aug 14, 14:00 - 16:00
venue: C1-060, Main Building (level 1)
Aisling's work focuses on the individual and their unique experiences and interpretations. Through the Alexander Technique and LearningMethods, she helps people overcome blocks and strains in their performance practice as well as in everyday life.
When we experience a recurring ‘symptom’ such as anxiety, physical tension, voice loss etc the underlying cause is generally related to patterns in our thinking. People often have much less difficulty, or no difficulty, singing or playing instruments in some situations as opposed to others. These contrast experiences can be very useful in terms of examining what is going on differently for the whole person in certain situations.
Learn how to systematically explore your thinking and experiences; work through any underlying misunderstandings and misinterpretations; gain the clarity to make changes that will enable you to be free from excess tension, stress, fear and anxiety; enjoy the experience of ease and connectedness in performance.
This workshop is open to everyone, but especially for musicians, singers, dancers, actors and public speakers. Alexander teachers and teachers of all types of performance who want to learn ways to help their students with issues around performance are also welcome.
