Description - Feldenkrais for Actors by Victoria Worsley
'The Feldenkrais Method is unique... I haven't found any other movement study that opens up such a rich and continuing area of enquiry' John Wright, from his Foreword
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.
Written by an experienced actor, theatre maker and Feldenkrais practitioner, Feldenkrais for Actors leads you through a range of topics where using the Method can help, such as:
Presence and Posture
The Role of Tension
Emotion, Character and Creativity
Voice and Breath
Injury and Anxiety
Also included are dozens of exercises and lessons so that you can experience how the Method will help you in practice.
Feldenkrais for Actors is the result of thirty years of study and experience of the Method, and the benefits it can bring. It is invaluable for actors at any stage of their career, as well as for singers, dancers, musicians, martial artists, athletes and more.
'A very readable, very practical book... makes a very passionate, detailed and accessible argument for how and why the Feldenkrais Method can be useful to an actor's continuing creative development'
- Theatre, Dance and Performance Training
'An essential read... a useful guide to Feldenkrais and his work'
- Word Matters Journal of the Society of Teachers of Speech and Drama
