Creative Speech (Speech Formation) raises speech to consciousness. We use our entire being to become more balanced, more whole. Our soul is engaged in a way that affects us and our audience profoundly. We breathe more deeply, more fully, which opens our soul, our relationship to the world around us, our life perspective. Creative Speech uses the forms, movements, colors and beings of the sounds to paint imaginations. We work with the three styles of speech: epic, the speech of stories and epic poetry; lyric, the speech of poetry; and dramatic, the speech of stylized conversation. Rhythm is an integral part of conscious speech. Specific exercises are used to work with breath, articulation, speech gesture and mood. With Creative Speech we find our true voice.
