Guided by Isabel, you'll navigate specially designed exercises for each faculty, gaining a deeper understanding of your cognitive processes.

Transcending The Script

Once you've immersed yourself in the script, it's time to embody the character and get ready to express your experiences of the story through your body.

 

This module teaches you how to integrate mind and body beyond mere memorization and mechanical performances. You will learn to breathe life into every movement and gesture. Discover several access points that help you tap into the authenticity of your character, ensuring your portrayal goes beyond expectations.

We'll cover essential aspects such as recognizing and working with oppositions within your body, tapping into creative energy, expressing energy and sound through your voice, understanding range for each character, presence, focus and more. Armed with this knowledge, you will forge a profound connection with your character, captivating audiences with your authentic portrayal.

With these skills, you'll connect deeply with other characters, transcending the limitations of the physical realm.
