Inviting artists and activists who need to start speaking their revolution out loud. As a group, we’ll explore tools for crafting and delivering the revolutionary speech you have inside you that the world needs to hear.
To convince, inform, inspire, or activate, mastering the fundamentals of good delivery demand more than a great idea. Understanding how to identify and follow the structure of a great speech lies at the heart of engaging the audience. Together we’ll study speeches from revolutionaries past and present as well as develop each participant’s distinct perspective. In addition, we’ll practice the relationship between body and voice to build strength and clarity in your virtual performance. Each artist will work on solo material. Classes will be taught in English.
Join Lani Fu (Co-Artistic Director of Superhero Clubhouse) and Ellen Lauren (SITI Co-Artistic Director) and for a 4-day, 10-hour intensive exploring writing, analysis, and presentation
“We have never needed your voice more than now. Analyzing how a speech is put together and what makes it tick has a great deal to do with knowing how to deliver it. Confidence in delivering a clear, complex and urgent argument, will improve you as a performer, a citizen, and I believe, as a person.”Ellen Lauren
