As actors, we can spend a lot of time on table work on a script, doing text analysis sitting down. But what happens when we get up on our feet to explore and play with the text? How do we connect our new found intentions, listen-in to our bodies, trust our gestural expression and physical story-telling? 

Through these three classes, we'll be exploring how to express text without words and how that informs your gestural life onstage. Where do authentic physical impulses and physical choices come from? Let's find out!

Format: 
1st Class: I will bring in a piece of text that we will explore and work on as a group.

2nd & 3rd Classes: You're welcome to keep using the piece from the first class or you can bring in a text of your own.
