This course focuses on the actor's body intelligence and how physicality creates character. We use the Feldenkrais “Method of Somatic Education and the Synapsing” system. Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lessons affect changes in posture, flexibility and range of motion. Synapsing's movement-based exercises are simple and playful, and ideally compliment the Feldenkrais Method in making it performer-specific. Students will develop an increased awareness of themselves in movement, specifically how to identify neuro-muscular patterns that hinder action, how to initiate change, and how to craft physical choices that support character development.
