Building Character: Text Preparation
In this three day course we will dive deeply into character preparation and your physical approach to character, giving participants a chance to discover the pathways to creating a character born of their physical-energetic truth.
This workshop will connect the instinctual element of The Lucid Body process with the text analysis, covering the application of all these physical tools to the text. If you are curious about how to build a character using your instincts while serving the character’s analysis, then this workshop is definitely for you!
A Lucid Body workshop is dedicated to create safe space for the growth of the actor and his/hers individuality. Through a non-judgmental and non-comparative perspective in the rehearsal room we learn how to allow aspects of the character that could be a challenge for us to emerge with ease and the specificity that the professional world requires.
The Lucid Body is a physical process that offers actors an alternative way of thinking about character embodiment. A Lucid Body workshop drops in the basic physical language and awareness that will benefit actors in a training program, as well as a cast throughout the rehearsal period.
Based on the premise that each body holds the potential to experience every human condition, The Lucid Body trains not just the physical body but also the mental and emotional body as well... without this self-dissection every character will look and feel the same. By first looking at the emotional and physical habits that limit the actor, this process ensures a healthier actor with a wider range of charater choices.
The course is aimeed for newcomers and previous students.
The participants may bring some text from a character that they are either working on for tv/film or a monologue from a play/film. They could be in English or Spanish.
MAXIMUM CLASS SIZE: 14 STUDENTS
NOTE: PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THIS COURSE IS ENTIRELY IN ENGLISH.
