Workshop comes to actors' aid
An actor's workshop will be held at the Fringe Club from September 30 to October 5.
The workshop, entitled 'Pre-expression, Presence and Energy', will be conducted in English by Rebecca Simpson, an actor-teacher-producer from Spain.
The course is designed to help actors enjoy greater physical freedom and energy, to access more readily their creativity, and to develop their expressive potential through gentle body awareness exercises, energetic solo and group work, breathing exercises as well as physical and vocal improvisation.
The course helps the actor's 'instrument' - body and voice - become more responsive and flexible.
Actors will discover why they sometimes limit themselves and what they can do to overcome unnecessary physical tension and habitual patterns.
The course employs a variety of teaching methods, such as Fedora Aberastury's 'Conscious Energy' system, the actor training work of Cristina Castrillo, yoga and contact improvisation. Ms Simpson has worked with various physical theatre companies.
The workshop will be conducted from 7 pm to 11 pm from September 30 to October 5 in the Fringe Club Rehearsal Room, Lan Kwai Fong. The fee is $600 and $480 for members.
