Bridging the gap between movement and acting, the Lucid Body Technique is a physical process that offers actors an alternative way of thinking about character embodiment. Using concepts of yoga, improv, modern dance, and Jungian psychology, this course will cover Lucid Body’s fundamental physical language and awareness tools geared toward increasing the student’s versatility and range of character choices. By first looking at the emotional and physical habits that limit the student, the group will then learn vigorous physical exercises designed to open their potential for full-body transformation into character, increase their dexterity to play far beyond type, and create dynamic scene work. Once learned, this process provides repeatable tools for developing ease in taking direction, and adjusting to different mediums: stage, film, and television. “My hope is that by stepping into the Lucid Body journey, you will understand that which feels most ugly, most forbidden and painful, most achingly beautiful and fragile are the parts of you that need to act.” (The Lucid Body; A Guide for the Physical Actor).
