Thursdays 5-6:30PM beginning September 5, 2019


Dan Morbyrne

Course Description:

In this class the body comes first. We learn how to create theatre and motivate characters through action and physical engagement rather than through a psychological approach to acting. This class will draw exercises from such physical theatre practitioners and disciplines as Viewpoints, Suzuki, Laban, Michael Chekhov, and Action Theatre. In a world where so much of performance is done for cameras, actors are losing the vitality in their whole-body physical presence. This is an essential class for students who want to inhabit the stage with strong physicality. Dress to move!
