There are no tickets available for this event

Event description:

This is a one-day workshop for re-invigorating some of the basic principles of acting, from a phenomenological perspective.
Phenomenology is the study of 'phenomena' - of how things appear in our experience of them, and therefore what meanings things have in our experience of them. This one-day workshop will re-visit the way we operate as sensory beings in our world. As actors, we need to constantly be aware of our body in both real and imaginary spaces and places: this workshop aims to revitalise the sensory awareness that informs our physical and emotional choices.
Participants should dress in comfortable clothing, with flat-heeled shoes or sneakers. Some exercises may be mildly physically demanding.
