Acting With Archetypes
, Intermediate, / Acting, , , , , / Regular
Ever-present in classic mythology, legend, literature, psychology, and art, archetypes exist as energies and characters that have spanned time and culture. Utilizing breath, movement, voice, and imagination, we will explore several archetypes... including the Ruler and the Warrior, that will enhance character development, heighten intuition, and deepen the connection between thought and action. Pulling from Patsy Rodenburg, Carol Pearson, Frankie Armstrong, and Michael Chekhov, Acting with Archetypes will feed your creative spirit and become a valuable asset to your "acting tool box."
