James Harrison is an Australian theatre-maker, musician, and performance coach based in Tasmania. He is passionate about creating new works that explore the Australian experience, and investigating the methods by which performers train. His ongoing work suggests that many of the exigencies of performance could be addressed by implementing key elements of Kendo, a Japanese martial art, and he has devised a series of exercises that explore those concepts. Pivotal to the work Is the idea that increasing demands on muscles used for vocalization in training, prepares the performer for easier vocalization in performance.
