Performing with presence and charisma turns your science career into an outstanding one. It is a skill that is highly influenced by a proper use of voice and body language. In this course, the participants will shed light on their individual performance.
First, the participants will explore the skill of a present and charismatic body language and expand their individual vocal potential. Through explorations and improvisational processes, the participants get the chance to expand on their body awareness and their vocal potential. With input on voice technique and do’s and dont’s on body language, the participants learn about concrete tools to master their performance. Both, inner attitude as well as outer appearance are being considered and reflected upon to develop a convicting presence.

Contents in brief

  • Creating and expanding body awareness based on the notion of embodiment
  • Exploration of vocal expression
  • Technical considerations for the use of voice: Breath, muscular activity, pitch, resonance
