Following on from our successful summer pilot courses that attracted participants from across the UK, Europe and even the USA, Michael Corbidge, Senior Associate and Voice Coach at the Royal Shakespeare Company, returns to host 2 exciting 8 week Zoom courses.

 

THE KEY (to Shakespeare)

A bespoke box of tools to help make the Bard accessible to anyone, unlocking a hidden world of sumptuous sound, voice, physicality, all woven into the words of Shakespeare’s text. Whether you are an experienced classical theatre buff, a professional or emerging actor, or just someone who is keen to discover the joys of text and character for the first time, this fun and friendly 8 week workshop will have plenty to offer you.

 

Tuesday 20th October – Tuesday 15th December, 7.30pm – 9pm. Course fee £75.

 

YOUR VOICE, REVEALED

With professional vocal techniques developed for theatre by Michael Corbidge with Cicely Berry, this 8 week course is for anyone from any industry (lawyers, teachers, actors, salespeople), to learn to develop your voice as a tool, to speak with passion and flair, and to be heard with interest and enjoyment. Michael will demystify the link between body, voice and text needed to give a clear, coherent, and confident presentation or performance.

 

Tuesday 20th October – Tuesday 15th December, 7.30pm – 9pm. Course fee £75.

COVID 19

Every life has been affected by Covid 19. Our thoughts and sympathies are with each and every person who has been bereaved, lost work, suffered physical or mental illness or had their lives turned upside down in these difficult times.

 

We are devastated that we have been unable to perform any live shows or host any physical group activities, however the health and safety of our staff and our community members will always take priority and we will remain physically closed until we feel we are able to safely open our doors.

Thanks to emergency funding support from Arts Council England and Knowsley Council the Imaginarium team have been working tirelessly on zoom to keep our creative community together and to develop a  range of online activities.

We thank you for your patience as we work together to navigate this time of uncertainty in our industry. We know with our commitment and your continued support we will get through this. 

 

Thank You.

Please consider supporting us.

We need your help like never before.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

We stand with all those who fight injustice and inequality, and we stand firmly with the Black Lives Matter movement. We will continue to listen and learn and make change; we must all do better.

 

Imaginarium will keep working to diversify our membership, our staff and our associate artists to ensure that people of colour are consistently represented in our industry, in our company and in our communities.
