The 4 P’s of Accent Acquisition: A Knight-Thompson Speechwork® Approach

Tuesday 20th August 2024, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM (London Time)

£30 - UK £30 - International

Master Teacher Andrea Caban will present a comprehensive and systematic approach to accent acquisition for actors. She will lay out an accessible and effective set of tools, exercises, and theoretical frameworks grounded in current linguistic science, as well as more than two decades of teaching, actor training, and coaching developed by Knight-Thompson Speechwork®.

The innovative approach of the Four Ps – People, Prosody, Posture, and Pronunciation – builds cultural competence that honors accents as they exist in the world, increases the physical and perceptive skills of the actor, and provides a rich variety of applications to encourage fluid and embodied accent performance.

Each of the Four Ps are investigated and practiced separately and then synthesized in the art of the performer, allowing actors to address the complexity of acting in accent through a deliberate and sequential layering of skills, rendering the final expression of their technique meticulously accurate and deeply authentic.
