About the event

Every Friday 5pm - 7pm.

21st July to 18th August.

A five week introductory course. You will encounter work that links the body to the imagination to bring vibrancy and dynamism to your acting choices. Inspired by Michael Chekhov’s technique, these playful and physical sessions will focus on waking up the body as an expressive tool, and play with a number of psychophysical techniques that can be applied to deepen your connection to a role whilst letting pleasure be your guide.
