Masterclass physical acting

Physical acting proposes the body as a starting point for making theatre. In this masterclass you will be introduced to principles of physical theatre such as energy and presence on stage, improvisation and the construction of actions and short scenes through movement and body awareness. Together we will explore the potentialities of each actor/actress and get the most of your physical acting skills.
