Getting into character- Interpreters as actors

 

Build on your skills to become an even more authentic and convincing interpreter so that people listen without even noticing you are interpreting! How does your body language, posture, breathing and voice affect your ability to best communicate?

Beth will lead us in some theater exercises that address this question. We'll also make time for sharing experiences and listen to each other's successes and frustrations. Come and add your perspective and personality! Dress comfortably

Registration opens on January 2nd, 2017
