The semester will include emphasis on relaxation; sensory exercises designed to develop imagination, focus, concentration and emotional openness; exercises for physical and vocal freedom, and listening exercises in order to create an organic moment to moment reality. You will discover how to make compelling, informed choices and how to take actions and choose behaviors that both illustrate and illuminate the human condition.
