The Art of Presence - Alexander Technique for Actors
What is it about this musician that grabs your attention? For me, it's his sense of presence, of being in the now, of being with his audience. All performers, whether musicians, dancers or actors, wish for this kind of connection. The truly great performers understand how to get it - how to "be with" rather than "be in front of" an audience. Alexander Technique is a tool that can help you get there.
My first Alexander Technique for Actors Class for 2020 is enrolling now. Daytime classes will run weekly from February 6 through February 27, from 11:30 - 12:45.
Many actors already know the benefit of using Alexander Technique to stay grounded and deliver lines with conviction and clarity. Alexander Technique is also used in examining your own approach to using your body (as well as your mind) in acting. Got a physically demanding role? Using AT will help you change your stature healthily to suit the part. As a psycho-physical educational method, Alexander Technique helps you to be more embodied on stage and off. Camera actors also benefit greatly from this approach. Alexander Classes are a great way to introduce yourself to the Technique and to learn more about your own physical use in just a few short weeks.
Come play games, learn a bit about how your body works and how to work it, and get immersed in ideas to help you with grounding and sensing the world around you. Gentle hands on will guide the students into increased awareness, and homework will be given for helping to improve awareness outside of class. Please come with a monologue ready.
