Inner Conflict/Outward Expression
Characters can be pushed and pulled through their various wants and appetites in various directions, in their mind, but often actors can find challenge in how to physicalize an internal struggle. This workshop will combine method acting with movement through Michael Chekov, centers and grand gesture to find dynamic use of the space and then bring it to an organic place where the body translates and shares with an audience what the mind is experiencing in its struggle. This workshop is perfect for any actor looking to find authentic connection with their body through movement or stillness.
