Even with the most fully fleshed out internal work possible, an actor’s body and voice still act as the medium for expressing that work to the audience. Most of us carry around an effortful mask of habitual movement and vocal patterns that keep the full potential of our talent and skill from coming through. The goal of this class is to help actors investigate and strip back these habits of thinking, being, and doing and to forge a connection to the body that can allow the actor to communicate with presence, subtly, spontaneity, and above all truth. With the lifting of these physical blocks, the actor also gains deeper access to their emotional life and the ability to make stronger choices and craft stronger performances.
Class runs for 8 weeks on Saturdays from 1-3 p.m. at Green Shirt Studio. $275.
