Ever felt like you get cast in the same roles over and over again?  It’s probably because your body is locked into the same expressive form.  Increase your mobility, express-ability…and castability!  The workshop will analyze each participant’s movement strengths and habits, and then work to expand individual movement range. This will expand the variety of characters that can be convincingly portrayed on stage.
