EMBODYING THE CHARACTER USING ANIMAL STUDIES, IMAGES, & THE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE (2-day intensive)
Tuesday, Feb 13, 2018 – Wednesday, Feb 14, 2018
10:00am – 5:00pm
Jean-Louis believes that we must see and feel the world through the eyes and body of animals. This advanced workshop is especially designed to teach actors to transform into a character. The study of animals enables actors to act and react in new ways, enrich and expand their own physical and emotional world, and include surprising and new ways of moving and acting.
Connecting to the body through awareness with the Alexander Technique (getting out of your head) ● Freeing impulse and response patterns by exploring animal behavior ● Recognizing the force of habit ● Improving breath coordination and vocal quality ● Improving our movement by learning to organize body relationships ● Understanding Means and Ends ● Making clear choices of intention ● Infusing direction in our thinking and movement ● Applying the Alexander Technique to monologues, sonnets, songs, and scenes ● Learning to develop characters physically (if I believe your body, I’ll believe your character)
This workshop is for past and current students of Andre Bolouri’s Actors Space Berlin. Class and waitlist are full.
