What to prepare
Some of the exercises require that you know a short text by heart. Rest assured, this is not something you will ever be asked to perform – it’s just needed for some of the exercises. You can use one you are familiar with, or find a new one. It can be anything at all – a nursery rhyme, a song lyric, a Shakespearean monologue, the national anthem, a poem, anything. It really doesn’t matter, although it does help if it’s something you enjoy. It can get pretty tedious saying, “Row, row, row your boat” over and over. Just saying… Whatever you choose to memorize, it should be at least 45 seconds long, though any length in excess of that is fine. Having it WELL memorized is important.
What to bring
Apart from lunch and maybe a snack and a water bottle, you might wish to bring something to lie on for exercises (a yoga mat or even just a towel) and clothes that are comfortable to move in.
There will be a one-hour lunch break. Some workshops take place within walking distance to restaurants, but some don’t so please feel free to check with us. (Food is a biological imperative!)
