Physical Acting Lab- London
Lead by Yorgos Karamalegos - full Info Here
A FEW PLACES LEFT
Yorgos works with the exhilarating sense of freedom and release that performers experience when they dive inside the body.Through durational movement practices and music, performers open up physically and emotionally, ground themselves down, and discover their qualities (mind, body, emotion).
They experience their full strenth/capacity, which is often hidden under layers of performing habits, emotional resistance or simply trying too hard.
From that freeing place, moving, acting, improvising and performing is impulsive, enjoyable and effortless.
The acting training focuses on physical grounding and identification of the individual’s qualities.
The training places great emphasis on the development of each individual, which can be invaluable to improve yourself as an actor and physical performer.
Yorgos gives practical tools to explore/enrich existing qualities and release the restricting habits.
The work applies to film work as it brings performers and actors to a grounded realistic place.
