Product description

From the Back Cover

'Technique as such is a myth, for there is no such things as a correct voice. There is no right way - there are only a million wrong ways.'

Voice and the Actor is the first classic work by Cicely Berry, Voice Director of the Royal Shakespear Company and world-famous voice teacher. Encapsulating her renowned method of teaching voice production, the exercises in this straightforward, no-nonsense guide will develop relaxation, breathing and muscular control - without which no actor or speaker can achieve their full potential.

Illustrated with passages used in Cicely Berry's own teaching, Voice and the Actor is the essential first step towards speaking a text with truth and meaning. Inspiring and practical, her words will be a revelation for beginner and professional alike.
'Without Cicely Berry, without her talent, my journey from film back to Shakespear would have been impossible.' - Jeremy Irons
'Cicely Berry sees the voice teacher as involved in all of a theatre's work. She would never try to separate the sound of words from their living context. For her the two inseparable. This is what makes her book so necessary and valuable.'
From the foreword by Peter Brook --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
