A practical approach to expanding the actor's skill with a primary tool: the body. Finally an online course that isn't all about sitting in front of the computer! You'll stand and move in front of the computer instead. The course will focus on personal applications for each student, introducing a wide variety of techniques drawn from yoga, Viewpoints, Laban, Chekhov psychological gesture, Suzuki stillness, physical needs and tactics, and physical emotion exercises. For students with some acting experience. Requires at least a small area in which the student can move around in front of a computer.
