Beginning Aug 19: 8 Week Class for Actors Level 1—Removing the Physical Mask with Jeremy Cohn

IMG_9241.jpg

Even with the most fully fleshed out internal work possible, an actor’s body and voice still act as the medium for expressing that work to the audience. Most of us carry around an effortful mask of habitual movement and vocal patterns that keep the full potential of our talent and skill from coming through. The goal of this class is to investigate and strip back these habits of thinking, being, and doing and to forge a connection to the body that can allow the actor to communicate with presence, subtly, spontaneity, and above all truth. With the lifting of these physical blocks, the actor also gains deeper access to their emotional life and the ability to make stronger choices and craft stronger performances.

Class size is limited to ensure attention to the development of the individual. An indispensable companion to Green Shirt Studio’s Meisner training or any acting method.

The training I was able to do with Jeremy in the Alexander Technique has inspired new confidence, ease, and creativity in my acting. Whether you want to ignite a deeper sense of mind-body connection or refine your philosophy on storytelling, Jeremy’s classes are transformational and will help you expand your sense of self. I think I even grew taller!
