Technique elevates your character

Physical Character Workshop
with Lou Henry

This workshop will provide you with the necessary skills to get into the body of your character and the physical aspects of your acting by creating character through the physical exploration of animals.

A fantastic way to exercise the creative and playful actor in you. 

During this workshop you will explore the animal world, embodying a variety of animals, learning about their innate qualities, rhythms and movements. Then through improvisation you will apply your findings and begin to develop characters in real life situations. 
This is a physical workshop, therefor
e you will need comfy, loose clothing and water. Feel free to take notes after the workshop but not during, it is important to be fully present in the room.
