Movement 1 Wednesday Evenings 7pm

October 3rd – December 12, 2018 & January 9th – March 13th 2019

Throughout the twenty-week period, students go through a variety of exercises drawn from the Williamson Technique. They will begin to understand how this technique is the physical component of the acting work they are doing in their Meisner classes. It is a chance for students to immediately move beyond physical constrictions and use the body as a full acting instrument that can interact unimpeded with all the senses, to the world around them and to the other “players’ in that world..
Students will explore where tension is held in the body and how the body responds when it is emotionally alive. Simultaneously, students will be building a sense of grace, flexibility, strength, stamina, and vulnerability. The goal is to effortlessly apply these principles to making clear physical choices in the acting work.
