Any time you communicate with others, the way you carry yourself, the way you speak, and the way you interact with your listeners - your presence - is equally as important as the words you say. Great actors, musicians, and public speakers all seem to have strong presence, and to some degree, this same capacity is something we all need and use in many areas of life, both professional and personal. Is this ability to connect powerfully and authentically with an audience something you’re born with, or are there ways to develop it? Can presence, in fact, be learned?As you’ll discover in this illuminating and highly practical course, the answer is an unqualified ´´yes”. The skills of poise, physical ease in public, clarity of speaking, and engaging, effective communication are well understood and can be practiced and developed in ways that will greatly improve your success in presenting yourself in any setting.In Mastering Stage Presence: How to Present to Any Audience, Melanie Martin Long, a celebrated teacher of acting and directing, leads you in an in-depth exploration of the skills - and the joy - of performance and self-presentation. You’ll practice exercises to develop physical freedom and ease and to expand your vocal resources. You’ll learn how to channel nervous energy into effective performance and how to keep your audience’s attention. With the skills you’ll develop, you can confidently step forward as a performer or presenter, offering your best self to the world in any setting.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. 1.

Why Shakespeare? What explains our continued fascination with his poems and plays? In Living with Shakespeare, Susannah Carson invites 40 actors, directors, scholars, and writers to reflect on why his work is still such a vital part of our culture. We hear from James Earl Jones on reclaiming Othello as a tragic hero, Julie Taymor on turning Prospero into Prospera, Camille Paglia on teaching the plays to actors, F. Murray Abraham on gaining an audience’s sympathy for Shylock, Sir Ben Kingsley on communicating Shakespeare’s ideas through performance, Germaine Greer on the playwright’s home life, Dame Harriet Walter on the complexity of his heroines, Brian Cox on social conflict in his time and ours, Jane Smiley on transposing King Lear to Iowa in A Thousand Acres, and Sir Antony Sher on feeling at home in Shakespeare’s language. Together these essays provide a fresh appreciation of Shakespeare’s works as a living legacy to be read, seen, performed, adapted, revised, wrestled with, and embraced by creative professionals and lay enthusiasts alike. The complete list of narrators includes Ann Noble and Arnell Powell. 1. Language: English.
