Like training the voice, the singerâ€™s body must also be trained as an instrument of expressionâ€”both are parts of the Performerâ€™s Instrument. Corporeal and vocal behavior, how and why a person moves and speaks the way they do, is psycho-physical in nature: both mental and physical. This behavioral life is employed onstage, under the pressure and scrutiny of performance, to make the invisible visible without â€œacting it out.”
Presence is the goal of the surplus energy and tension in the performerâ€™s body while onstage. This surplus of energy is linked with display, or offering up to the publicâ€™s attention, and would be considered a waste of energy in daily life. This enlargement of energy â€œfeedsâ€ Presence and is psycho-physical in nature: both mental and physical.
Directors often speak in resultsâ€”describing what they want to see and feel as you perform. Singers are not always trained to translate these results into ACTIONS they can accomplish in the moment. This Master Class takes the mystery out of Acting and makes it â€œeasy as pieâ€ to generate a logical sequence of actions you can play moment to moment, rather than trying to play an emotion that can interrupt your ability to sing well.
