Charlotte will be teaching the final installment of her course, Moving into Language, on Dec 12-13th as part of Gibney's online workshop series. Moving Into Language is an approach to acting created specifically for trained dancers; taking what they know & understand so deeply about their bodies and using that as the foundation for their acting explorations. It encompasses the essential first steps of the acting process, taking dancers through a period of physically-driven exploration and invention, then into a conscious process of selection and refinement, and back into a state of discovery as unconscious reactions/feelings arise at the time of performance. ‘Playing’ offers an opportunity for dancers to explore the final step of that journey by providing a supportive and curious environment in which to practice “playing” specific choices while allowing new impulses to emerge. We will explore strategies for staying private in public (while still meeting the demands of a stage, or on-camera setting) and tips for dealing with anxieties about speaking or playing a character in front of an audience.
