Where Are You? Specifying Your Acting through Spatial Awareness
This class works both from the outside-in and the inside-out to help participants cultivate an appreciation of the link between the imagination and the body. Starting with physical improvisation exercises, participants come to a better awareness of spatial relationships and their potency as a tool in telling a story. Layering in verbal prompts to spark the imagination, participants are led on an exploration of how images and remembered sensations can impact the body and its physical expression, again in aid of communicating the story of their character.
This class can be taught in two contexts: either as a stand alone workshop that explores the principals and dynamics of space, or as part of a rehearsal or scene study process in which the principals can be directly applied to material upon which participants are already working.
