A Workshop by Tony Fuemmeler

The actor has a wealth of tools in their body alone. In this movement-centered workshop, we will explore using your physicality to generate and sustain legible characters and interactions. 

Together we will:

Explore dynamic gesture
Create specific physical character
Tell a story without saying a thing
Access your availability to play
Connect to audiences more fully
Generate material from the body

Be sure to wear clothes you are comfortable moving in.
