Alexander technique for voice and posture.
The Alexander technique was created by Australian actor F.M. Alexander (1869-1955) who began to experience chronic laryngitis whenever he performed. When his doctors could not help him, Alexander discovered a solution on his own. Over a career span of more than fifty years, he refined his method of instruction and began to train teachers of what has now become known as the Alexander Technique.
This year the festival brings two experienced Alexander teachers to offer an introductory workshop to the Alexander Technique. The workshop will consist of gentle movement and an exploration into how the body moves and therefore effects posture and voice production. Please wear comfortable clothes. Not suitable for children under 12.
