Shakespeare & Company to Present 'Movement: Presence, Power and Freedom' Online This November

Students will have an opportunity to strengthen their connections to their bodies and being to facilitate greater freedom of expression.

Shakespeare & Company to Present 'Movement: Presence, Power and Freedom' Online This November

Shakespeare & Company's Center for Actor Training schedule of online workshops and intensives for Fall 2022 continues with Movement: Presence, Power and Freedom, led by Shakespeare & Company's Director of Training Sheila Bandyopadhyay.

Combining a variety of Eastern and Western somatic practices including Pure Movement (Swings), the Alexander Technique, yogic philosophy, and mindful awareness of self, students will have an opportunity to strengthen their connections to their bodies and being to facilitate greater freedom of expression. They will be guided through movement sequences and activities to deepen connections to sensation, imagination, and breath, while also having an opportunity to non-judgmentally observe limiting beliefs that may be holding them back. This workshop is an opportunity to dive deeply into the experience of authentic, embodied presence both for work as an actor and as a technique for living. All levels are welcome.

SCHEDULE: November 2, 9, 16, and 30 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. (U.S. Eastern time)

TUITION: $150 USD

LOCATION: This class will meet via Zoom.

FACULTY: Sheila Bandyopadhyay (she/her). Click here for Sheila's bio.

Shakespeare & Company's Center For Actor Training

The aesthetic of Shakespeare & Company was created within the training devised by Founding Artistic Director Tina Packer and a cadre of expert teachers. It is through these programs that the aesthetic is continually investigated, redefined, and reinvigorated, and that welcomes actors, directors, writers, and teachers from all over the world to work with the Company's faculty. Through the Center for Actor Training, Shakespeare & Company's performance artists, education artists, and artist-managers develop a common artistic vocabulary and a coherent approach to performing Shakespeare.
