Subtitled Creative Articulation for Actors (RADA Guides), here Annie Morrison abandons the notion that language and thought are mainly processed in the left cerebral hemisphere, and coaches the actor to speak from the heart

Through this method, words acquire physical properties, such as weight, texture, colour and kinetic force

Think about Martin Luther King, Mao Zedong or Malala Yousafzai - potent speech impacts external events

And internally, it forms and shapes the world of the speaker

Seeing articulation as a purely mechanical skill is detrimental to an actor's process

It is crucial to understand what language is doing on a biological level

This unique workbook is invaluable for actors, both professional and in training, and also for voice and speech teachers
