Body’n’Emotion

Language: Englisch, Chinese

About the workshop

Acting is always physical work. A role, a character that we develop as actors can have many different emotions. We investigate the effects that emotions have on our bodily state in order to then use this knowledge for developing our characters. It is possible to access inner emotions via physical work on the outer body. Our tools for this journey are close observation and breath control.
