Fundamentally, actors must have a command of their instrument – their own body/mind – not unlike the command musicians need with their instruments – a cello, for instance. This includes an ability to release as well as shape their body’s energy, to fill the space, and to have their imagination, intellect, emotions, and psyche reflected through their body – all so that both the subtlest and most broad of impulses can be realized. This work develops a sense of impulse and connection to breath and directly enlivens the actor’s imagination and physical impulse to breath and physical expression.
