Movement with George Lewis at Freehold
Based on the Biomechanics of Vsevelod Meyerhold, this class seeks to develop in the actor the physical confidence to undertake dynamic action onstage, an extraordinary sense of focus to direct that action, the physical imagination that allows the actor to make choices that will excite the actor's own - and through them, the audience's - senses. Participants will discover a heightened sense of their own physical capabilities by acting in a state of physical extremity, using physical constructions (ramps, stairs, and tables), basic acrobatics, props (sticks, balls, and everyday objects), partner interplay, and dynamic vocalization.
