Where Words Prevail
Program Description

As voice director of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Cicely Berry's influence reaches far beyond traditional training. Berry strives to help not only well-known actors and directors, but also those living on the margins of society, find their authentic voice. From rehearsals at the RSC in Stratford-on-Avon, to workshops and master classes in Seoul, Moscow and the slums of Rio de Janeiro, Berry's work produces a new understanding of the power of voice, language and communication. WHERE WORDS PREVAIL follows her work from rehearsals in Stratford-on-Avon to workshops in Seoul, New York, Moscow and the slums of Rio de Janeiro, where youngsters read Shakespeare and come to understand the relevance of the work to their own lives.
