“Speech is power: speech is to persuade, to convert, to compel”
-R. W. Emerson
Would you like to master the art of giving a compelling presentation? After establishing the basics, this workshop will teach you the skills of a performance artist but in direct relation to architectural presentations.
Goal and Objectives
A full day workshop aiming to enhance the structural and performative qualities of the students’ presentation skills. The workshop will involve individual and group practices, led by a professional presentation coach, deliberately focusing on every participant’s personal character and desired developmental course. Theoretical knowledge about structuring a presentation, defining your fascinations, formulating your main message and identifying your audience will be put in practice through a large scale of applied theater techniques. During these exercises the use of your voice, body language and other psychological factors will be challenged, improved and reflected upon.
