ACTOR’S ACCENT TOOLKIT:
An Introduction to Knight-Thompson Speechwork for Performers
Friday, April 3, 9am – 1pm & 2pm – 6pm PST
Online via Zoom
$90 for repeat registration
Certified Teacher Siobhan Doherty leads an introduction to Knight-Thompson Speechwork for performers and public speakers. This eight-hour workshop focuses on understanding what accents are and the skills needed to develop them. With a tailored blend of discussion, exercises, and context-building, students walk away with an understanding of the muscles that shape speech, the patterns that make up accents, and the tools they need to adopt any accent. It also introduces a more helpful, KTS-based approach to the idea of “Accent Reduction,” getting to the same result without shame or guilt.
