About the Book

Actors need to learn not only how to use their voice, but to use voice and language together. This book is about the expressive potential of language, and how actors can develop the verbal skills to release that potential. Written by tutors at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) and authors of the successful companion title, The Vocal Arts Work book + DVD, this book provides practical approaches to each aspect of verbal expression:

Sound: speech sounds and how to use them more expressively
Image: bring life and specificity to images when you speak
Sense: focus on the most significant words and phrases in a speech or scene
Rhythm: how rhythm is created and used in both verse and prose
Argument: the structure or logic of language
Putting it all together using one classical and one modern scene

Each of the chapters consists of several sections: Framework; Exploration; Exercises; Follow-up; Suggested Texts; and Further Reading, addressing the learner throughout, but also providing Teaching Tips which give specific notes for teachers.
