EMBODYING THE CHARACTER USING ANIMAL STUDIES & IMAGES

April 16, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Embodying The Character Using Animal Studies & Images
Sunday, April 16 | 10 AM – 5 PM

Highways Performance Space
1651 18th St, Santa Monica, CA 90404

This advanced workshop is designed to teach actors how to transform into and embody a character. Jean-Louis and Kristof both share the belief that actors must see and feel the world through the eyes and bodies of animals. The study of animals enables actors to act and react in new ways, enrich and expand their physical and emotional worlds, and discover new, surprising ways of moving and acting.

In this intensive, you’ll focus on finding the physical matrix of the character, a “hook” or an “anchor,” which clearly expresses the stance, the walk, the gestures, and the psychological and emotional life of the character within the given circumstances. We find the body that corresponds not only to the logic of the text but also its rhythms and energy, allowing the words to be spoken with greater ease; the voice (and its energy and music) directly reflect the body, and both become integrated.

This is an artist-led event. For any question related to this event please visit https://www.highwaysperformance.org/
