In this first session at the Studio, Adele worked with our Head of Music Mark Shanahan to explore communication in performance and the barriers to emoting whilst singing and workshopped the tools required to achieve a powerful response from our audience. This inspiring session reflects the Studio’s dynamic approach to training.
It was a real pleasure to work with the trainees at NOS. Our aim was to help them look at communication from a different perspective, specifically using sign language to explore how it felt to use a physical method of communication rather than a vocal method. We used sign language to give a new angle on how lyrics and music have an impact on a performer's emotions. I think it's useful to try something totally new to help uncover aspects of the work that we don't always notice, and the trainees did a great job!
