EMBODIMENT FOR ACTORS
Take your acting career to the next level!
Embodiment For Actors offers physically based acting courses designed to awaken creative flow and activate body/breath connection, to encourage intuitive impulses.
Actors will gain access to their powerhouse energy source and a further understanding of how this energy flows throughout the body. During the process, shadow (subconscious) traits and repressed archetypes will be identified. Tapping into the shadow and recognising the multitude of archetypes, enables actors to identify their particular emotional blocks, explore masculine/feminine polarities and sexual/creative energy. The effectiveness of this process, lies in the ability to access deeper parts of their psyche, develop consciousness and create fully embodied characters.
Various modalities will be utilised, to allow participants to tap into the hidden parts of themselves, the shadow (subconscious), to enable a full expression on the actors instrument. By exploring the shadow aspects of the psyche, primal wild woman/man, feminine/masculine polarities and archetypes, a fully embodied actor will result. The effectiveness of this technique lies in the ability to access deep levels of the psyche, enabling the actor to give truthful performances, and to create authentic and embodied characters.
