A stage artist, be it a playwright or a singer, then to get a good voice he needs good breathing too. Therefore he must train his breathing apparatus and use it appropriately in order to obtain maximum results, both in training or in staging. Don’t forget to teach your children about this if you want to perform some children’s plays with them.
There are four types of breathing that are commonly used:
In breathing our chest absorbs the air then we put it in the chest cavity so that our chest puffed up. Among the theater people, chest breathing is usually not used because besides the capacity or the capacity of the chest for air is very little.
It’s called abdominal breathing if the air we breathe we put in the stomach so that our stomach swells. Abdominal breathing is used by some playwrights because it does not interfere much with motion.
In complete breathing, we use the chest and abdomen to store air, so that the air we absorb is very much (maximum). Complete breathing is used by some stage artists who usually do not prioritize acting, but rather vocal.
The diaphragm is the part of our body that lies between the chest cavity and the stomach. Meanwhile, what is meant by diaphragmatic breathing is when the actor takes as much air as possible and then is stored in the diaphragm and feels that the diaphragm is really expanding. This hat can be felt by expanding the stomach, waist, and even the back of the body above the hips, we also expand. According to recent developments, many theater people use diaphragmatic breathing, because it does not interfere with much movement and more capacity than abdominal breathing. Breathing exercises:
First, we absorb as much air as possible. Then put it in the chest, then lower it to the stomach, until there we hold our breath. In such circumstances, our body moves down to the lower limit. After reaching the bottom, then up again to its original position, then we breathe out again.
The second way is to inhale and exhale quickly.
The next way is to take a deep breath, then exhale through the mouth by hissing, mumbling, or other methods. Here we have started to allude to vocals.
