Breath in Action by Cicely Berry Breath in Action, Paperback (May 2009)

Breath in Action looks at the significance of breath to human life - not just the simple fact that if we stop breathing, we die, but also the more subtle ways in which our breath interacts with our voice and our being. Combining theory with practice, many of the chapters also offer clearly laid out breathing exercises and techniques.

Text in Action by Cicely Berry Text in Action, Paperback (February 2001)

The world of a play is created by its language; the imagary, rhythm and speech structures all contribute to its representation of reality. With techniques that can be applied to a wide range of work, the author sets out language work to uncover different layers of meaning within the text.

Your Voice and How to Use it by Cicely Berry Your Voice and How to Use it, Paperback (November 1994)

Anxiety about how we speak and sound to others prevents many of us from expressing ourselves as we'd like. In this book the Voice Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company tackles the reasons for this anxiety and shows practical steps to good speech and full use of the voice.
