Hi Helen,

I think it'd be great if you could post any info on voice projection etc. Also, do you know of any books that teach the theory of how to do this?

I too am a "loud bugger", but find that after one show my voice begins to die and takes a couple of days to come back.

If you could post it here that'd be grand, since it would be about voice projection for the ea I wouldn't have thought the management would have a problem with it.

Thanks again,

Ros

Oh, I forgot to add my thanks to Ace for posting his thoughts on street performing and if you are new to it I would definately suggest heading over to his website. Loads of great info over there.

Cheers Ace.

I'll get on it; thinking about it, it'll probably be a short series of articles. Even at a basic introductory level, it would take an individual article just to discuss breathing (the first thing I teach everyone).

As for books, try "The Actor Speaks: Voice and the Performer" by Patsy Rodeburg ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN......-0122009

Also look up anything you can find on the research and method of Jo Estill and the Voicecraft technique it inspired; it has caused something of a revolution in the field in recent decades and is an enormous influence on what I do.

For theissue of boredom, I find using something like thumb cuffs, handcuffs, or any other "quick" restraint can be a remedy. Also, when doing a chain/rope escape, how does one ensure that you are tied up hard enough to be impressive, I've been tied up before, and the people have done such a horrible job that it fell off before they even finished, it was really embarassing, any advice?

Best Advice might be to Ham it up a Bit. or encourage the people on as they are tying you up.

Cheers Helen,

I'll be sitting down to read it all later.

Glatner,

As for the rope/chain problem I let them finish, then just allow it to fall off saying: "This is cr4p! You took all that time and produce this?!?! My nan could get out of this."

Then get a small girl to come out with them and help them to tie me up better. This is really funny if the perso who tied you up initially is a big guy.
