The Acting Studio encourages actors to broaden their awareness of themselves and their attentiveness to others.
The Studio is based on Alexander Technique, a method of self-discovery which focuses on the basic impulses of human movement and how we interfere with our own coordination. Aspects explored during Studio sessions include class and status, physical encounters, animal exercise and image and memory work. Participants prepare performances and create characters by focusing on the body and breathing, feelings and the subconscious.
Acting is a collaborative activity; it involves an exchange of ideas and energy between artists with a common goal - to serve the characters, the story, and ultimately, the audience. As the complexity of our world grows, seeing interrelationships rather than linear cause and effect chains becomes urgent.Jean-Louis Rodrigue and Kristof Konrad
