Feldenkrais for Actors

Spontaneity, sensitivity, simplicity and flexibility in any situation are just some of the qualities that the Feldenkrais Method has inspired in performers around the world. It uses movement to enable you to feel, adapt and respond in new ways – not just in limited, habitual patterns – thereby increasing your physical, emotional and mental potential.

From a blog post by the author:

To explain how The Feldenkrais Method© helps actors is a big job. Indeed, it’s just taken me a whole book - and even that’s just an introduction as it opens up an enormous area of study. Presence, posture, voice, breath, spontaneity, sensitivity, versatility, flexibility are all addressed by this very profound and fundamental method. Let’s just take one corner of it here:

We could say that an actor is engaged in an examination of human behaviour couldn’t we? Exploring and portraying people’s different ways of living and responding to life. But if so, then how much do you, as an actor, know about your own behaviour for a start? If you want to be able to portray how someone else behaves, you need to know as much as you can about how you behave first or how can you make any kind of choice about what to do differently? It’s notoriously difficult.
