Level 1 – The Embodied Actor: Introduction to the Alexander Technique
Is your body an asset to your performance or does it stand in your way?
This introductory class will teach you how to get out of your head and into your body, increasing physical connection, breath, and ease in performance while helping you to let go of habits that might be holding you back from your full potential.
An excellent companion to Green Shirt’s Meisner training or any acting method. Come learn this profoundly transformative technique usually only available at the conservatory level and used by actors such as Kevin Kline, Lupita Nyong’o, Annette Benning, John Cleese, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellan, and many others.
Wednesdays (1/31 – 3/21), 10:30am-12:30pm (Instructors: Jeremy Cohn)
Level 2 – The Physical Imagination
Build a full physical life onstage by learning how to create a character’s body and breath, exploring spatial awareness and scene partnering exercises, and mastering strategies to use your body as a primary tool to create spontaneity and creativity in performance. Alexander experience required.
Next session will be announced soon!
