Workshop: Stage Movement: Physical Techniques for Telling the Story
with Alice Nelson
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words… What’s your picture saying?
For Actors & Directors! Maximize the story that your body can tell by maximizing your control, connection and understanding of “physical stories”. Stage Movement classes give actors the ability to make holistic character choices, give the director options, and gain control over physical habits that detract from your performance. Directors can get a better understanding of how to balance the stage, use space for status, and use blocking correctly.
