Alexander Technique for Actors

Series 11

An eight week movement series, as an introduction to the Alexander Technique

Teacher: Mary Cerny

This course is a must for all those actors wanting to learn more about how to use their bodies both in performance and life in general. The Alexander technique teaches people how to stop using unnecessary levels of muscular and mental tension during their everyday activities, thereby laying a foundation of freedom and ease that will translate into your performance. It is an educational process rather than a relaxation technique or form of exercise.

Your body is fundamental, and so often highly ignored. This course will teach you how to use it properly, and to your absolute advantage!!

The course is a fully comprehensive eight week movement class, aimed at freeing the body, allowing greater access and expression. The course will use both physical and text work to engage directly with the craft of acting and how it relates to movement within the body covering; tension, release, personal expression and physicalisation.
