Workshops

what you can expect

A focus on many different kinds of energy work, with some training in breathing and alignment techniques with the specific methods used by Lishi (these will be familiar to most people who have some experience with sacral-cranial, Alexander, and Feldenkrais approaches), and additional training in proprioceptive expansion. All workshops also include experiments with applications of 'qi' in acting, including voice, sound, silence, spoken word, gesture, posture, movement, stillness, and engaging with people, things, space and time. After consultation, there can be some traditional and task-based scene work, as well as improvisation skills for stage and for film.

a typical workshop

The two hour session will explore and develop actor training specifically in the practice of energy cultivation and expression as a next step forward from established theatre training practices into alignment and breathing. We will use methods from Lishi (see below) to look at how to apply qi (life force/energy flow) in acting, including voice, sound, silence, spoken word, gesture, posture, movement, stillness, and engaging with people, things, space and time.
