All the world’s a stage
Giving a lecture involves a performance before an audience. Therefore, we thought it useful to have an expert in public performances – a theatre director – to give us some training in the physical aspects of performance. These include features such as voice projection, breathing, posture, stance, and movement. We have just had two very exciting and successful training sessions led by actor and director, Mr Marcus Bazley. The participants found these sessions great fun. As well as being useful and effective, they were a welcome change from our usual daily activities. We even did some exercises used by actors at the Royal Shakespeare Company, although I doubt any of us will be giving up our day jobs.
